When running the command smbpasswd as user, it times out and doesn't let
you change password.
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 127.0.0.1:139
unable to connect to SMB server on machine 127.0.0.1. 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.

samba config file incase needed
Do you have the firewall set up?
Yes I am running iptables and port 139 is blocked but only for INPUT, not
Ok, I took out port 139 from iptables and that fixed it. That should only
block incoming traffic not internal though shouldn't it?
It depends; if you don't explicitly specify to have everything on localhost
accepted, it will also block localhost.
