Heretofore, i had assumed that samba didnt care if a client connected via 139 or 445.
However, i've just read some documentation that indicates that a windows client would prefer to connect via 445.
So, that calls my assumption into question, so it seemed appropriate to ask you guys.
Does smb behave differently for callers at the two different ports?
If so, what pathologies might i experience on a samba server that has incoming connections blocked on port 445?
