try opening port 445 as well.  smb runs over tcp/ip in newer versions of
windows if you have it enabled.

Subject: [Samba] samba and ipchains

I am having major set backs trying to access through my firewall (ipchains).
The default policy on my chains is set to deny and then i am giving the
following ipchains rule for samba.

ipchains -A input -p tcp -s $Internal_subnet -d Internal_net 137:139 -j
ipchains -A input -p udp -s $Internal_subnet -d Internal_net 137:139 -j
ipchains -A output -p tcp -d $Internal_subnet -s Internal_net 137:139 -j
ipchains -A output -p udp -d $Internal_subnet -s Internal_net 137:139 -j

this does not work.

BUT, If i change the policy to accept all, then the samba is accessible from
win client machines. just to make sure that the ipchains was configured
properly i ran my ftp server from all 3 ports and tested the connection from
client machine. i was able to connect to the ftp server.

can someone please tell me what i am missing.
