    yes... it really does!

    can you explain why the fix is about this two lines and what this variables mean? would like to understand a bit more what I am doing...

    Change the line UDP="" to UDP="netbios-ns netbios-dgm"
    Change the line BROADCAST="" to BROADCAST="netbios-ns netbios-dgm"


    thanks

    Those names map to the port numbers that need to be opened on the firewall. You can see the mappings in the file /etc/services.

    I have revised the original post that starts this thread. I received news from Novell that the bug I reported was in fact not a bug. A new Service was introduced into the 11.x releases of openSUSE, called "Netbios Server". I've adjusted the description of how to open the firewall to include the new service. The previous description works but is now redundant.

    So I've cut the sticky adrift. If you see ppl with Samba + firewall problems in the Forums, please advise them of the new feature the devs have introduced and the way to use it (post #1 of this thread).

    Those using NNTP should be sure to read the sticky from the web interface.

    i still have to do this in order to make samba works

    in /etc/sysconfig/SuSEfirewall2.d/services/samba-server
    Change the line UDP="" to UDP="netbios-ns netbios-dgm"
    Change the line BROADCAST="" to BROADCAST="netbios-ns netbios-dgm"


    even with the recent samba update...

    It should be OK without that fix, provided you activate "Netbios Server" as an allowed service in Yast's firewall module. Did you do that? And, what version of openSUSE is thie, 11.0 or 11.1? And, was it installed from the DVD media or the KDE live CD?
