samba problem


allright, i had my samba configured. everything worked fine. now it doesn't. i don't know where else to look at for the problem. I checked it with and without my firewall running although it worked with my firewall running before. I checked my smbd.conf file to make sure nothing changed why it would i dont know. I also did the testparm command and it says everything is fine. My win2k machine sees the name of my slack9 machine when i go to computers near me but when i try to go to that machine and see my share it says that it is not accessible. Nothing at all has changed on either machine since last time i used it except maybe a reboot and i have installed ethereal on my slack9 machine since then. Other than that i cant figure out why it doesn't work all of the sudden. any ideas?

when i do a "ps aux" i can see nmbd running but my smbd is not running anywhere. If smbd is not running then how come it says its running when i go to swat...status and how come it says its running in the log file. then if i type smbd and check the log file i see error messages where it couldn't bind to port 139 because it is in use, probably by the smbd already but something isn't making a connection here. i can view all the packets using ethereal but i don't understand what all that means yet because i am just starting to learn all that.

Do you have samba set to startup when you turn on your computer? If not type "smbd -D nmbd -D" in the conmsole.

funny thing is i can see nmbd running when i do ps aux but swat says its not running, i cant see smbd running when i do ps aux but swat says it is. I had no problem ftp'ing in and getting the file i wanted. i have no trouble pinging or ssh'ing in. I am about ready to say fuc|< samba and ftp and just limit everything to ssh since it is the only secure thing between all of them anyway and what do ya know i get half the responses when i search for posts/problems setting up ssh vs. ftp servers or samba!!

Thankyou for the thousands of responses, but i am saying fuck samba!!! I closed everything down except ssh and since i can do that on my win2k machine i am deleting this samba shit since noone knows anything about it and i dont really need it.
