I understand your point exactly.
Thats what makes this so furstrating. I do run the firewall which fedora uses; not SELinix. I shouldnt have to log in to get anything working. I switched to FC from Win2003 AD which i was running at home. I never had to log in for our shares to work or any other service for that matter.
Some more investigation is in order.
Thanks for your time.
If i find an answer i will reply here so someone else can benefit.
Here is the output from the commands:
ps -ef|grep smb
root 2284 1 0 13:03 ? 00:00:00 smbd -D
root 2306 2284 0 13:03 ? 00:00:00 smbd -D
root 2581 2537 0 13:06 pts/0 00:00:00 grep smb
netstat -tapn|grep smb
tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:139 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 2284/smbd
tcp 0 0 0.0.0.0:445 0.0.0.0:* LISTEN 2284/smbd
