How to start Samba on startup??


I am trying to get Samba to start on reboot. I have Samba in the /etc/init.d folder because /etc/init.d/samba start works. That's what I currently have to do every time I reboot.

Is there a terminal command I can use to add it to a .conf file? If not, can someone talk me through (very gently) how to configure this.

I am running Ubuntu Feisty Fawn 7.04.
TIA

You could start by telling us your distro. Probably you will have to add your samba configfile to another rc file.

Go to System > Admin > Services and make sure that Samba is enabled.

Not an option

Jay,

That is not one of the options listed in Services.

You could always install webmin, and configure all your service from there... someday youll need more than samba who knows?...

Webmin is an easy way to administer services..

sysv-rc-conf or rcconf would be the Debian way..
Redhat would use the chkconfig tool
