Re: CIFS for 11.31 --installation and firewall ports

Hello,

You must open the ports used by netbios and directory service.

Those ports are:

netbios-ns 137/tcp # NetBIOS Name Service
netbios-ns 137/udp
netbios-dgm 138/tcp # NetBIOS Datagram Service
netbios-dgm 138/udp
netbios-ssn 139/tcp # NetBIOS Session Service
netbios-ssn 139/udp
microsoft-ds 445/tcp # Microsoft Directory Service
microsoft-ds 445/udp

(check /etc/services)

So open 137-139 and 445 on both tcp and udp and should do the job.


Best regards,
Horia.

Depending on what kind of domain controller you want to use:

netbios-ns 137-139 and 445

TCP and UDP
