VMWare has and requires it's own version of Samba for sharing files between
the host and virtual machines. It is an optional component during install
and can be read about in the online help or online at VMWare.com.

Subject: [Samba] samba with vmware


I just installed Red Hat 9 on a Dell Latitude D600
laptop.  Then I installed VMware 4 and installed
Windows XP as the guest operating system.  I want to
run Samba on the Red Hat 9 host to share files with
the Windows XP guest.  Each OS individually is running
fine.  I compiled Samba 3.0.2 on the Red Hat host, but
I can't start Samba.  I try starting it with
"/usr/sbin/smbd -D", but "/etc/rc.d/init.d/smb status"
always shows that it's stopped.  When I do "smbclient
-L starsky", I get:

added interface ip=
bcast= nmask=
added interface ip= bcast= nmask=
added interface ip= bcast= nmask=
error connecting to (Connection refused) Error connecting to (Connection refused) Connection to starsky failed

starsky is the name of the Red Hat host.  I also can't
connect to starsky:901 to run SWAT.  httpd is running
on the host.  Thanks for any suggestions,
