Hi guys !

I have a problem and I hope I can get some help here.

I want to run a Samba server on a linux firewall machine.
This firewall allowa all the udp pachets and also icmp. The firewall blocks 
all TCP incomming connection exept on port 22 (ssh). 

I have allowed incomming conection on 137, 138, and 139 (TCP) ports and I 
stiil get an error message from windows clients. The computer appears in the 
net but when I try to browse I get an error: "Network path not found !"

I hope the windows machine is using only 137-139 ports to open TCP connections 
on the samba server .....

looking forward for your help,

Adrian Ciocildau
