Please provide more details.

Are is this Samba acting as a server?

Did this configuration work in an older version of Samba and Red Hat 7.2?

Can you attach your samba configuration files?

Comment 2 Warren Togami 2002-04-17 09:40:54 UTC
Also if you are running Samba server, be sure that the built in "Firewall"  
that you configured during Skipjack installation isn't blocking those ports.  
Can you please post the output of "ipchains -L"?

Comment 4 Need Real Name 2002-04-17 11:00:28 UTC
this is my home computer that is a file server for 2 othercomputers.
this smb.conf worked with 7.2
my only other idea is maybe I have security levels too high, I dont remember
what I set during the install

You're blocking the traffic in the firewall

Comment 7 Need Real Name 2002-04-17 17:53:51 UTC
thanks, I believe I chose the default security level. perhaps this should be
changed to allow samba connections?

Comment 8 Trond Eivind Glomsrxd 2002-04-17 18:14:55 UTC
No, it's definitely a thing you usually do want to block when connected to the
