I am trying to see a Windows machine on my OpenSuSE 11.1 system. To
view the "other" machine, In Linux I have opened up Network Browsing,
click on SMB Shares, and I should see the Workgroup. On the other
machine I have turned off security (not wise I know, but it's
temporary). So I can't see the Workgroup. If I turn off the firewall
in Linux, I can see the Workgroup. If the firewall is turned on I can't
see the Workgroup.
Tried opening up ports 135 to 139 in the firewall but that is no help.
The purpose of this is to see a folder on the Linux system and be
able to access files within it.
So what service or ports should I be opening up in the Linux firewall?
