Hi !
I´ve just installed samba upon my linux kernel 2.0.29, Slakware. I´m running quota, sendmail, httpd and all that ordinary stuff (lpd, telnetd etc) Now - when I tried to install samba (which i have done plenty of times) it didn´t work. I did not get any errormessages while compiling it and I can se the linux-box in my workgroup-net, but I cant get access anything. The only different from the other times when I installed samba is that now I´m out at the big internet with my linux-box. I think smbd is using the same port as some other deamon, that is port 139.
In log. , and nmb.log and smb.log I get the message: "Bind failed at port 139 socket_addr=0 (Address already in use)
What shall I do???

Regards

Figure out what daemon is binding to port 139 and kill it.
If it isn't some daemon running (check with ps ax), it is probably your inet daemon. Go to your /etc/services file, find out what the name is of the service on port 139 (usually netbios-ssn), then go to your /etc/inetd.conf and check if there is an entry for this service. If so, comment it with a hash (#), and give your inetd the HUP signal to make it re-read its configuration (get the pid with ps ax | grep inetd, then restart it with kill -HUP <pid>.

Thanks.
In inetd.conf there was a line prepared for samba. Netbios ssn were there and took the address. I # the line and what a difference.
Thank you once again.
