Lns 2.0.7, Phant0m rules 008.5r1, WinXP-SP3. Under 008.4 I had to make me rules for filesharing to supplement P-rules for WinF&P sharing. No problems. It worked fine. But since I've just started clean LnS, and with a better Advanced options list, I wanted to see which, if any, of my port 139 and 445 rules really must be in for the LAN. It appears that I still have to drag them in, what do you think? Details: Each computer has mapped drives to another, both by computer name and by IP. Both set to reconnect at logon. Both computers' TCP/IP properties permit NetBIOS over wired connections. This log is from the moment the other computer (.63) booted. All TCP incoming packets have an "S" flag on them. Packets 17-34 are during the other box booting, where packets 21-28 are netbios broadcasts from .63 to 192.168.54.255. Packets 40-45 are when I want to connect from the other computer to me and Windows says that error occured while reconnecting to \\myIP\directory or for \\compName\directory it says No network found. I have no problem connecting out and using the specified directories on .63. It's not terribly important, but I thought I'd ask anyway. Edit @7:30pm In several firewalls I used, I always included ports 135,137-139,445 for LAN sharing since M$ played with NetBIOS and its 445 replacement (maybe). Might that be included in the P-rules as well, by default? Or is it a security issue of some sort.
