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 and as it is dynamically assigned by my router. Any help is much appreciated.

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

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