    Samba

    Is there a graphical interface for Samba, or is the only way to work with the program through the command line?

    Yes, it's called SWAT.

    Re:Samba

    Thanks, I found it and learned that you point the browser at http://localhost:901. When I do this the following is received:

    The connection was refused when attempting to contact localhost:901.

    I guess there must be some settings that need adjusting. Any ideas that may help out?

    Thanx.

    Welp, since you didn't mention what distro you're using, I'll assume you're using something like Redhat or Mandrake.
    If so, verify that swat is installed via the command:
    rpm -qa |grep swat
    If you're not using an rpm based distro or if it's not listed, get it installed. I'm sure packages are available for your distro of choice.

    Then please read this thread:

    Another good idea is to verify that 901 is open. Try
    $ netstat -a | grep 901

    Connection refused is normally a sign of the service not being available.

    Re:Samba

    have you edited etc/services? if not, you need to add the following :
    swat 901/tcp

    goodluck!

    When I run $netstat -a | grep 901 I get the following:

    unix 3 [] STREAM CONNECTED 901

    Still not able to connect.

    Re:Samba

    I forgot to mention that I am running the distro from Libranet 2.0. Maybe I need to switch to Mandrake?
