This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

hey guys i just installed samba on my rh 7.2 server...i got both the deamons up and running...but i cant get to SWAT over the network with 192.168.1.100:901 (thats the correct ip)...smbd and nmbd are up...what did i do wrong...also i cant find my smb.conf ANYWHERE...its not in /etc/samba (i dont even have a samba in etc) or in /usr/local/samba/lib/....help...thanks
ok i recompiled it and reinstalled this time i use make install > install.log.....so i searched thru the log and i found that it installed testparm...which lets me see where samba is looking for its .conf file...and it still couldnt find smb.conf
Is there anything in /usr/local/samba/lib? In FreeBSD 4.2 you had to make a smb.conf file. I have a little how-to at http://www.valkyrie.net/~tangle/comp.../smb_conf.htm. You can just cut and past this and change the values to what you need. I would do this and see if it works.
If your /etc/xinet.d/swat (Ithink that is the location) then it should work. Make sure that server = is the path to the swat binary.
# description: SWAT is the Samba Web Admin Tool. Use swat \
# to configure your Samba server. To use SWAT, \
# connect to port 901 with your favorite web browser.
port = 901
socket_type = stream
wait = no
only_from = localhost
user = root
server = /usr/local/samba/swat
log_on_failure += USERID
disable = no
