Having read a few posts recently I thought I would do some testing.
Given XP's use of 445 and that I have a couple of networks where they only have XP clients, I thought I would try setting smb ports to 445 only rather than that suggested of just specifying 139.
This has worked well for XP clients with SP2.
However SP1, and presumably pre-SP1 clients, lose all sight of the NBT network. Indeed they report an RPC error on start-up.
