    Default Opening Samba ports in the Firewall in openSUSE 11.1

    A new Service (netbios-server) has been added to the modules available for configuring SuSEfirewall2 via Yast. The netbios-server module commenced in openSUSE 11.0. This subtly changes the way we now open the firewall for Samba communications. Here's a quick HowTo for the 11.x series (do not use it for the 10.x series):

    You change settings in two locations in Yast.

    One location:
    Go to Yast --> Security and Users --> Firewall --> Allowed Services. In the right hand panel, set the Selected Zone to External. Below that, make sure that Samba Server and Netbios Server are added to the enabled list under Allowed Service.

    Other location:
    Go to Yast --> Security and Users --> Firewall --> Broadcast. Add your network intothe panel on the right. For example, if your network interface has the IP 10.1.33.4 then add the following range -- 10.1.33.0/24. For more info check pics on this link. That's how to allow your local LAN. If that stumps you then use this range: 0/0. That's the unsecured option, the whole world (so try the secure one first).
