I am using Samba2.2.8 on my Redhat 9 system.

I followed the steps given in the book using Samba by
Ts, Ecstein, et al., except I did not use 
     oplocks = no

because if I use it, I will problem when I do
testparm, which says "Invalid combination of
parameters for service test. Level II oplocks can only
be set if oplocks are also set."

Then I ran

smbclient -U% -L localhost

But I got this:

[root at RedHat samba]# smbclient -U% -L localhost
added interface ip= bcast=
timeout connecting to
Error connecting to (Operation already in
Connection to localhost failed
[root at RedHat samba]#

I am sure how to fix this.

Please educate.  Thanks a lot.
