Thanks for your kind reply. I have opened all necessary ports for
unicast traffic.

Do SAMBA works if one of the server is using a translated IP? Meaning to
say physically both machines are of different subnets, and one of the
machines is translated through the firewall to the other machines

You have to allow unicast traffic to udp port 137.

If these two LANs are subnets you must setup WINS or DNS too.

You might have to open both tcp and udp port 135 if you are using
spoolss as well.

You don't need 901 unless you are using SWAT.
