I've installed openSUSE 10.2 on my computer. In the same network group of my 
computer are two more computers on witch WinXP is installed. The problem is 
that I can't access the shares on the WinXP computers from my linux computer.

When I temporary switch of the suse firewall I have access on the WinXp 
shares. So it's sure that the firewall on my linux computer blocks the 
samba-client. Unfortunately I don't know how to configure the firewall so 
that the samba-client would be allowed to connect to other computers. In the 
firewall modul of yast I may only allow to open connections to the 
samba-server. I already searched for some help in some German linux forums 
but until now noone could help me to solve the problem.

I'd be very glad to get some help.
