I sounds like you just want a standalone server, If so, try this:

     workgroup = workgroup # NOTE: if the workgroup name really is 'workgroup'
                           #       you might as well remove it, it is the default. 
     security = user
     netbios name = SRV1

     printing = cups
     printcap name = cups
     printcap cache time = 750
     cups options = raw
     map to guest = Bad User

     wins support = Yes # If you have any other wins servers, remove this.
     log file = /var/log/samba/log.%I
     log level = 2
     hosts allow =
     hosts deny = ALL

With this smb.conf, users on machines in the subnets & should be able to connect. If they cannot now and could
before you installed the firewall device, I would suspect the firewall
