Even when you are not opening the pipe, but just listing it in cygwin, or trying to see the properties in explorer, you will have this problem:
Does anybody know how to disable named pipes in samba?
Or how you can kill the connection from the client side?
And no, setting "nt pipe support" to no, doesn't fix the problem.
Samba daemon hanging when trying to open a named pipe.
Samba version 2.2.5
Kernel 2.4.18 compiled with support for largefiles.
Client is Win2000 sp 2
How to reproduce:
Go to your home directory (If it is exported by samba)
make a named pipe: mkfifo .tst
Open your homedirectory in explorer.
Click on .tst
Diagnostics on the samba server:
ps -ef | grep smbd | grep <yourname>
strace -p <PID of your smbd process>
It should be hanging in an open statement
open(".tst", O_RDONLY|O_LARGEFILE <unfinished ...>
rm .tst from unix in your hoemdirectory
