Deal Samba users,
I am currently running the latest stable release port in freeBSD 6.2R AMD64, currently when I start samba using /usr/local/etc/rc.d/samba start, things work out ok, but when I try checking the status of SWAT to restart or stop the service things are showing up as "no running", can someone explain me how to work this around. I am pasting my configuration of smb.conf. Any help would be appreciated.
