I believe I have ipfw disabled..

# ps -ax|grep ipfw

I start it up by doing

# /usr/local/sbin/smbd -D ; /usr/local/sbin/nmbd -D

and then only find nmbd running.. is that normal behavior?

Also even after killing nmbd it comes back seemingly on its own.

Sorry if I'm rambling on but I seem to be lost.

Maybe I should instead try to copy the cups and samba execs in rc.d from 
their defaults and do a shutdown.
