I'm struggling to enable NTFS share between two Windows (XP and 7) hosts through a Linux firewall.
Here's my setup:
What I want to do is to NAT the NTFS input from the XP machine to the same ports on the Win7 machine.
The problem is that when I try from the XP machine to open the network share
\\LINUXFIREWALL then the firewall doesn't seem to be NATing the packets to the Win7 machine.
I've opened the standard NTFS/Samba ports like 135:139 and 445, some of them need UDP and the others TCP (details available on various sites).
However since I am running 2 different versions of windows I tried to google that to see if there would be a change between XP and 7 and that list is available on MS website : http://windows.microsoft.com/en-GB/windows7/Networking-home-computers-running-different-versions-of-Windows#section_2
My question is, if you are running 2 windows machine through a *nix box with iptables, can I ask what your iptables file looks like? Am I missing something?
