In my logs I see lots of the following error/warning messages:

smbd[13953]:   Denied connection from ( 
smbd[13968]:   Denied connection from ( 

The first one is OK. It's a client thats been denied by the hosts.allow 
directive. What does the second one mean.

Similarly in my log file directory I find two log files for each client

-rw-r--r--  1 root root  9292 Feb 20 12:49 log.
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 11492 Feb 21 17:03 log.cs304-36

Any reason why there are two.


I occasionally see lots of the following message:

smbd[25037]: [2007/01/30 13:16:22, 0] smbd/service.c:make_connection(805) 
smbd[25037]:   collinsj ( couldn't find service fas$adm 

What is this service fas$adm.

Samba is working fine so I assume that these are just warnings.
