I removed xinetd's files for netbios-ns and netbios-ssn, started nmbd
and smbd and they are running. Oddly enough, I created the netbios-ns
and netbios-ssn files for xinetd as per instructions from Jerry Carter's
book "Teach Yourself Samba in 24 Hours". Why would that book tell me to
do something that breaks Samba?
I did an smbstatus, got error message "Failed to open byte range locking
database", fixed it by using command "smbclient -L localhost".
I went to a Win98 machine, did a "net view \\linux-computer-name" and
received an Error 53 message from Windows "The computer name in the
network path cannot be located." Yet I can ping linux-computer-name by
name from the Win98 box.
Any help would be appreciated, thank you.
