No, I don't mean to ask you walking me step by step. Actually I am following the "Samba 3 By Example" and stuck at the very first example. I copied the whole smb.conf but cannot connect to my box. I can ping to it and ssh to it though. I notice in the example running "smbclient -L localhost -U%" will output the line below: ADMIN$ IPC IPC Service (Samba 3.0.20) but from my C5.1, I don't have this line, other lines are the same, can anyone explain this line, wondering if this is where the problem lies.
