Re: can I enable SAMBA client in firewall

I have a couple of wireshark captures (screen snapshots) here of
opensuse 10.2 and sled 10 connecting to my smb device.

The device I'm using is this;

It you run nmap from your computer to the device, what ports are open
on it?

445/tcp open microsoft-ds

Thanks for your help so far,

My file server looks similar to yours:
However the port numbers look completely different (see below).

I have been searching on the web for information about the unknown 862/tcp
port but I can't find anything.
There is no 445/tcp microsoft-ds port setup on my network.
I tried running nmap 3 times, once with the firewall enabled, once with
the firewall disabled and once when with a connection established from
Konqueror to the buffalo device and the output was the same in each case.

Any idea what is happening here? I would be very embarrassed if it was
running a different protocol than I thought. But if so why do I connect to
it with smb://hd-hglan82c/share/

Hi Martin
Looks like it's only using netbios for the shares. Are you running the
latest firmware, it may have some new features.

I would guess those other ports may be used for the mac sharing.

Try using the knetattach application to connect to a win share.
