    Hi everyone,

    I have so many problems with samba on one PC with SuSE 9.1 on.

    This PC is on a local area network with another PC with SuSE 9.0 on it
    with a working samba connection, and some windows clients.
    My 9.1 PC has an ASUS P4S800 motherboard and I use the integrated
    Asustek sis900 ethernet lan configured as eth0 with the sis900 module.
    Static IP and static gateway (the SuSE 9.0 machine).
    I'm able to surf the net without any problem, with my eth0. I ping-ed so
    many clients on the same networks for hours... no problems.
    I surfed internet (via eth0 and SuSE 9.0 as gateway) for long time, no
    But when I start a samba connection involving the SuSE 9.1 PC, from the
    9.1 machine or from the 9.0 machine or from some win machine as well, it
    works but just after some while I have all my network dropped down... I
    can't surf, I can't ping anything. Just dead!
    All my network is down, and I'm not able to see the net anymore, not
    only the samba connections!

    I really need some help, or something to try, 'cos I'm completely out of
    Thank you very much in advance!


    Some configuration files:

    in /var/log/messages I have only:
    server kernel: NETDEV WATCHDOG: eth0: trasmit timed out
    server kernel: eth0: Trasmit timeout, status 00000000 00000260

    in /var/log/samba/log.nmbd I have:
    [2004/07/06 11:50:14, 0] nmbd/nmbd.c:terminate(54)
    Got SIGTERM: going down...
    [2004/07/06 11:51:18, 0] nmbd/nmbd.c:main(664)
    Netbios nameserver version 3.0.2a-SUSE started

    in /var/log/samba/log.smbd I can see only:
    [2004/07/06 11:51:29, 0] smbd/server.c:main(748)
    smbd version 3.0.2a-SUSE started

    in /etc/samba:
    lmhosts smbfstab smbpasswd smbusers are quite identical to ones in the
    SuSE 9.0 machine (empty at all)

    smb.conf should be very close to the SuSE 9.0 one, and there is:
    # smb.conf is the main Samba configuration file. You find a full commented
    # version at /usr/share/doc/packages/samba/examples/smb.conf.SuSE
    # Date: 2004-04-06

    force user = server

    guest ok = yes

    I tried to nmap from the SuSE 9.0 machine, ad I've got this:

    Starting nmap 3.30 ( http://www.insecure.org/nmap/ ) at 2004-07-06 17:58
    Interesting ports on
    (The 1183 ports scanned but not shown below are in state: filtered)
    Port State Service (RPC) Owner
    22/tcp open ssh
    23/tcp closed telnet
    25/tcp closed smtp
    80/tcp closed http
    110/tcp closed pop-3
    113/tcp closed auth
    137/tcp closed netbios-ns
    138/tcp closed netbios-dgm
    139/tcp open netbios-ssn
    143/tcp closed imap2
    443/tcp closed https
    873/tcp closed rsync
    993/tcp closed imaps
    995/tcp closed pop3s

    Nmap run completed -- 1 IP address (1 host up) scanned in 57.392 seconds
    (but I tried to open the 137 and the 138 ports too, via YaST)

    I just can say more that the shared samba disk space is on a software
    RAID 1 partition, but without any problem used locally...

    Thanks again!!!
