Unable to connect to Samba on CentOS 6.2 machine


Hey all, I'm stumped. I've configured Samba on all of my Linux servers as an easy way to move files to and from my XP workstation (<-- sorry). I just created a CentOS 6.2 machine and I'm unable to connect to it from Windows. I even copied the smb.conf file from another machine with a working Samba configuration but I still can't connect. Restarting smbd and nmbd looks good -- no errors. I know that they ARE starting because:

Code:
[root@CentOS62 Shares]# ps -ef | grep [sn]mbd
root      2973     1  0 15:33 ?        00:00:00 /usr/sbin/smbd start
root      2974  2973  0 15:33 ?        00:00:00 /usr/sbin/smbd start
root      2976     1  0 15:34 ?        00:00:00 /usr/sbin/nmbd start
BUT, if I run nmap on this machine the only open port below 5000 is 22. So why isn't port 139 opening up???

Thanks,

Joe B

Have you configured the firewall if running and selinux for SMB traffic?

Wow, thanks michaelk, that was it. I was so sure I turned iptables off that I didn't bother to confirm it.

Thanks again,

Joe B
