allow tcp port 139 on internal, dmz and/or external


Hi,

I'm using Suse 9.1 (doing most configuring through Yast2 or Webmin as I'm still new to it) and trying to run samba on it.

The boot-logfile gives me the following message (three times, in each of the three firewall phases once):
"Warning: detected activated samba, enabling FW_SERVICE_SMB!
You still have to allow tcp port 139 on internal, dmz and/or external."

In SuSEfirewall2 I opened port 139 already.

What do I have to do to solve that problem?

Are there any other ports I have to open to get samba working?

Thanx a bunch!

About the ports needed for samba to work:
smbd uses tcp ports 139 and 445
nmbd uses udp ports 137 and 138
