Restarting Services


I'm am fairly competent in Linux but I can't find out how to restart services in OSX from an SSH terminal. I have modified the smb.conf file but need to restart the samba server. How do I do this?

Thank you...Kevin
Here is a great link -

From link:

"To make Samba aware of the changes, use the command sudo killall -HUP smbd. This will tell the Samba daemon to reload its configuration information."

Also check out the part on how to enable SWAT (Samba Web Admin Tool) in article.

Heck - just read the whole thing. It's become my "bible" on everything SAMBA for Mac OS X.

Best thing I ever read.
