Well, turns out there was nothing wrong with any of the Samba stuff
afterall, all it was is while doing the install of Red Hat 8.0, I
selected "custom" configuration, and "medium" security. Well, that
"medium" security setting killed me, it was apparently stopping all
necessary traffic. A bright friend of mine had me type in:
'/etc/rc.d/init.d/iptables stop', and poof, everything works perfect
now, already got my printer shared too.
So, if anyone out there is battling issues like I was, with XP
Home/Pro, and you have tried smb.conf files which you KNOW came from
working computers, try typing that command in, it might solve alot of
A clue (not to me, but to my friend) was that when I typed in
'/etc/rc.d/init.d/smb restart', smbd would shutdown correctly, but nmbd
would not shutdown, always gave a error that the process wasn't
running. So apparently it was trying to run but getting killed? Who
knows, anyway, it works and I'm happy.
