[Samba] Windows vista

I've had little trouble getting WinXP to use a Samba share
but Vista is obstinate. According to "netstat -an" on the Vista machine,
its port 445 is open and being listened to. The Vista machine
knows that the Samba server is there but reckons it's not allowed
to connect.

Should port 445 be turned off in order to connect to Samba?
How? What other adjustments need to be made?
Does Samba use ports 137-8?

All help appreciated.
