Im running Win2k and try to connect to my Linux (PARISC-Linux) HP B180L
running Samba 2.2.3
./configure --prefix=/opt/samba --enable-debug --with-smbmount
make install
added swat settings in /etc/services and /etc/inetd.conf
swat works fine..
I have added 2users to smbpasswd file located in /opt/samba/private
the username and password are identical to the one that i have on my win2k
# Samba config file created using SWAT
# from gab4-238.gbg.ehpt.com (
# Date: 2002/02/04 10:46:04
# Global parameters
        workgroup = EHSNT
        netbios name = BONZO
        server string =
        encrypt passwords = Yes
        announce as = NT Workstation
        dns proxy = No
        hide dot files = No
        comment = Tmp dir
        path = /tmp
        read only = No
        guest ok = Yes

When try to start samba i get this error.

the deamon however is up and running..
then i try start->run->\\bonzo on my win2k box
after a few seconds i get and error box saying "The semaphore timeout period
has expired"
Do you have any idea?
