[Samba] samba through a firewall

I have samba installed & running successfully on a Solaris 8 server.
directory shares were working as expected until the machine was put on a
DMZ, and now it's stopped working.  I can ping from my PC to the server, and
telnet, but samba seems to have no route through the firewall - possibly the
firewall needs to have different ports opened up to allow samba traffic
through?  I need to know which port numbers smbd & nmbd use.
Appreciate any ideas to help solve my problem.

Thanks & regards
