inetd[78]: /usr/sbin/nmbd: exit status 0x1


Hi,


I keep getting the following error reported in /var/adm/syslog.  Is it a normal thing, or should I
worry about it?  If I should worry about it, does anyone
know how to fix it so I won't have to worry about it?

I'm running a Dual PPro 200 with SMP enabled and a 3Com
595-TX ethernet card.  I'm also trying to get mgetty and
PPP running on this machine, but more about that in the
next question.


Thanks!

Hey jetx,


Thanks for the suggestion.  Security is something I should
probably look into more deeply at some point!

But I found the problem here.  It's Samba.  I asked that it
be installed at some point, but never configured it.  The
solution (since I don't really want Samba) was to comment the
following lines out of /etc/inetd.conf:

#netbios-ssn     stream  tcp     nowait  root    /usr/sbin/smbd  smbd
#netbios-ns      dgram   udp     wait    root    /usr/sbin/nmbd  nmbd

Thanks,
Spootie
