Hi all,

I had samba installed with RedHat 6.2. When I made it running by
updating inetd.conf, services, smb.conf as instructed in the man of
smbd, smbd always failed to start up with the last message:
  bind failed on port 139. socket_addr= (Address already in use)

I couldn't find out which address smbd referred to here

Can someone help me with this

Thanks a lot

Hung Nguyen
