Samba Ports On Linux Nas Getting Blocked
In my home network I have a Linux raid NAS for backup purpose, running on vmware virtual machine in a Windows 7 host. Unfortunately, from my Windows 7 host, with BitDefender 2010 Firewall enabled, I cannot acces the samba share of the NAS.
Considering that if I disable the BitDefender firewall everything works well (i.e. I can see and access the samba share), I have been trying playing with the settings of the firewall (allowing almost everything) but in no way I have been able to allow this particular traffic.
This look very strange, since no matter how I allow traffic I still can't see the share on the network. I'm wondering if the firewall is blocking the traffic out from Windows 7 to samba or the packets IN versus the vmware virtual server. The log is not telling too much.
Of course opening SMB ports (plus also the 137-139) simply does not work.
I have been trying also removing completely ALL the rules, put the firewall on "report"mode, and allowing everyting is being asked. No luck even in this way.
I'm loosing my hope so I'm wondering if anyone has the same problem, or if can be of any help.
Thanks in advance,
