    Anyone who still isn't protected by a (personal) firewall should be hacked right now. I don't care anymore :mad:

    Hi Stephanos,

    I've haven't used a firewall personal firewall for three years, but I'll try to answer you question.
    According to IANA microsoft-ds is port 445 TCP/UDP. The rule you provided should be sufficient as long as it includes TCP and UDP.

    Port 445 is invisible on my machine thanks to my router, at least according to shields up and pc flanks tests, so I guess I have nothing to worry about.

    i don't know what all the symbols mean in your screenshot, so sorry if you have already done it; but you can set it to log activity on that port
