calling the .RESTARTSAMBA intent

I'm new to playing with Tasker, but what I have found is that I can start/stop the samba server with com.funkyfresh.samba.RESTARTSAMBA and com.funkyfresh.samba.STOPSAMBA intent. However! this is different from disable/enabling the samba server through the GUI.
eg, when using an Activity Intent to the Broadcast Receiver on tasker, com.funkyfresh.samba.STOPSAMBA stops the server - it shows on the samba server front screen as "Enabled - not running". Whereas pressing "disable" thru the gui will give "Disabled - not running".
SO, provided that you dont "disable" the server manually, you can control the program through Tasker.
Unfortunatly, when you manually disable the server, you cannot restart it with the intent com.funkyfresh.samba.RESTARTSAMBA! this seems to mean that there is step before the intent (.RESTARTSERVER) where the server is "enabled"...
please chime in if anybody has any thoughts as i'm a bit new to android..
