Give local computer unrestricted access


I am using shorewall and I would like to give the other computer in my house unrestricted access to my computer to use samba. The IP address will be between 192.168.1.2 and 192.168.1.20 as it is dynamically assigned by my router. Any help is much appreciated.

soooo.. you want to let 192.168.1.2 to 192.68.1.20 through the firewall..... ?

i dont know about the GUI u are using, but the iptables command would be
iptables -I INPUT -s 192.168.1.2/5 -j ACCEPT
should allow all local access.
