Can a machine getting its IP address by DHCP run as a Samba server?
I've set up several Red Hat machines as Samba servers. They all have
static IP addresses. I want to have a Red Hat 8.0 laptop which gets its
IP address by DHCP running as a Samba server. I usually start Samba
with "/etc/rc.d/init.d/smb start". When I do this on the laptop, it
says that smb and nmb start OK. But when I do "/etc/rc.d/init.d/smb
status" on the laptop, it says that smbd is stopped and nmbd is running.
When I do "smbclient -L localhost" on the laptop, it says that
connection is refused to 127.0.0.1. I've tried installing Samba 2.2.7a
from source, and installing Samba 2.2.5 from RPMS. I still can't start
smbd. Thanks for any suggestions,
