Description Mike Chambers 2001-04-08 00:36:59 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.5; Windows NT 5.0)

When running the command smbpasswd as user, it times out and doesn't let 
you change password.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
2.old pass, hit enter
3.new pass, hit enter
4.confirm pass, hit enter

Actual Results:  [reddawg@homer reddawg]$ smbpasswd
Old SMB password:
New SMB password:
Retype new SMB password:
timeout connecting to
unable to connect to SMB server on machine Error was : code 0.
Failed to change password for reddawg

[reddawg@homer reddawg]$ rpm -q samba

Expected Results:  Should let you change password and accept it.

Also having problems connecting to samba from win2000 machine.  Using same 
smb.conf file from RH 7 that worked, now doesn't let you connect to the 
workgroup.  Just mentioned as maybe they are related problems.

Do you have the firewall set up?

Comment 3 Mike Chambers 2001-04-08 05:04:52 UTC
Yes I am running iptables and port 139 is blocked but only for INPUT, not 

Comment 4 Mike Chambers 2001-04-08 05:07:25 UTC
Ok, I took out port 139 from iptables and that fixed it.  That should only 
block incoming traffic not internal though shouldn't it?

Comment 5 Bill Nottingham 2001-04-08 20:25:36 UTC
It depends; if you don't explicitly specify to have everything on localhost
accepted, it will also block localhost.
