I have a OpenBSD 3.3-box, wich I am planning to use as a local fileserver. 
When I installed Samba, it did not work. After hours of searching for the 
failure, I still cannot find it. Please help! 

Some info: 

# smbclient -U% -L localhost
added interface ip= bcast= nmask=
timeout connecting to
Error connecting to (Operation already in progress)
Connection to localhost failed 

(This seams very strange to me) 

The smb.conf I am using: 

# Samba config file created using SWAT
# from (
# Date: 2003/09/20 16:26:49 

# Global parameters
       workgroup = NETDISASTERS
       netbios name = SKRUTT
       server string = Samba Server
       interfaces = rl0
       encrypt passwords = Yes
       log file = /var/log/smbd.%m
       max log size = 50
       dns proxy = No
       wins support = Yes 

       comment = Home Directories
       valid users = %S
       read only = No
       browseable = No 

       comment = All Printers
       path = /var/spool/samba
       printable = Yes
       browseable = No 

/etc/samba/smb.conf: unmodified: line 1 

(the rl0 interface is the one pointing in to my local network. This box also 
acts as a router.) 

I would really appreciate som help regarding this.
