    Samba network port not active


    I have installed Samba and I am trying to connect to it with no luck

    I have disabled the firewall, selinux as well as reloaded winbind several times but TCP 445 will not activate at shown below

    [root@server4 oberlander]# netstat -anno | grep 445
    [root@server4 oberlander]#

    I am also positive samba is installed on the server:

    [root@server4 oberlander]# rpm -qa | grep samba
    samba-common-3.5.6-86.el6.x86_64
    samba-client-3.5.6-86.el6.x86_64
    samba-winbind-clients-3.5.6-86.el6.x86_64
    samba4-libs-4.0.0-23.alpha11.el6.x86_64
    samba-3.5.6-86.el6.x86_64
    samba-winbind-3.5.6-86.el6.x86_64

    Oh BTW this is a Red Hat 6 EL server.

    I am clueless at this point, so any help would be greatfull, thanks.

    have you started the service? e.g., service smb start

    I figured it out, turns out that the latest version of samba doesn't use winbind like before.

    Under /etc/init.d/ the samba service is smb, once I started that everything worked like it need to.

    Thanks though
