look like ur firewall is blocking broadcast packets from pot 138 ?
theses packets are denied by the firewall??

Please excuse a newbe question.

I recently installed samba on my internal network.
Everything seems to work, windows and linux machines can log on.
However I get the following messages from some of the server firewalls.

Nov 22 21:01:12 fsn3 kernel: Packet log: input DENY eth1 PROTO=17 L=328 S=0x00 I=1035 F=0x0000 T=255 (#42)
I realize this one must be dhcp, but none of my systems use dhcp

Nov 22 21:04:46 fsn3 kernel: Packet log: input DENY eth1 PROTO=17 L=241 S=0x00 I=18915 F=0x0000 T=64 (#42)
I am not sure what this one is, maybe the samba server negotiating master.?
