Does Samba support connecting to a server using port 445 if you have 
Netbios over TCP/IP disabled on your client system?
In Windows 2000/XP you have the possibility to disable Netbios over TCP/IP 
and use port 445 to make an SMB connection.

I've done some tests and apparently samba (version 2.2.3a) does not support 
connections on port 445.

Am I correct?
If so, will this be possible in future releases of samba?
