Samba fellows:

We are having a hard time trying to find out what is going wrong
with our samba configuration.

We are getting this error on the log file when trying to initate a new connection: 

[2004/03/17 00:01:54, 0] smbd/service.c:make_connection_snum(677)
  '/tmp' does not exist or is not a directory, when connecting to [IPC$]
[2004/03/17 00:01:54, 2] smbd/server.c:exit_server(558)
  Closing connections

It does not matter which directory I use it fails.

The /tmp file exists ( all permisions 777 ), I did a google search
for this error and I found a lot of questions about, but I could not find
any answer to this. 

Do you have any clue of what could be wrong ?

    # write list = @aepd @it
