Re: Tcpip Port(s) used by Samba

As on every platform Samba runs on (it must be cross-platform compatible after all):

Samba listens for incoming connections on these ports:

- TCP protocol: ports 139 and 445 (process smbd)

- UDP protocol: ports 137 and 138 (process nmbd)

The nmbd process will also send outgoing traffic to those same ports on other hosts, to announce its presence in the Windows Network Neighborhood system.

In addition, SWAT (the optional web-based management tool for Samba) uses TCP port 901. It is typically started from /etc/inetd.conf, so it can be restricted using tcp-wrappers. Or if you choose to always edit Samba configuration manually, you won't need SWAT at all and can completely disable/uninstall it.
