Hallo all over the world,
I'm a totaly new samba user (that's not true :-)  I try to implement samba
the very first time!)
The compilation of samba 1.9.17p5 on an AIX 4.2 box and its installation
was fine......
But the configuration may not. The network connection is using a token ring
and is
already running for terminals and printers. The terminals are W95 with X11

After adding all IP address stuff I start with DIAGNOSIS.txt and my
installation came only to
TEST.3 . After checking all tips and tricks my server is very unfriendly

02:root /usr/local/samba # bin/smbclient -d 5 -Lmyhostname

01/27/98 14:47:00 client started (version 1.9.17p5)

I don't have network knowledge and would be very happy to get some help.

Thanx in advance
