Hey all, I'm stumped. I've configured Samba on all of my Linux servers as an easy way to move files to and from my XP workstation (<-- sorry). I just created a CentOS 6.2 machine and I'm unable to connect to it from Windows. I even copied the smb.conf file from another machine with a working Samba configuration but I still can't connect. Restarting smbd and nmbd looks good -- no errors. I know that they ARE starting because:
[root@CentOS62 Shares]# ps -ef | grep [sn]mbd
root 2973 1 0 15:33 ? 00:00:00 /usr/sbin/smbd start
root 2974 2973 0 15:33 ? 00:00:00 /usr/sbin/smbd start
root 2976 1 0 15:34 ? 00:00:00 /usr/sbin/nmbd start
BUT, if I run nmap on this machine the only open port below 5000 is 22. So why isn't port 139 opening up???
