I tried that. Used 445, not 443 (oops). Did a load/unload of smbd. No
change. Changed it to 139. Worked better, for a few months. Went back to
old behavior, which is a lot like having no "smb ports =" in my conf file
844. My veal cutlet tried to beat the s**t out of my cup of coffee... the
coffee just wasn't strong enough to defend himself. (Tom Waits)
