comment Allow Windows file share through a Linux Firewall
But anyway, I am happy to deal with the MS side of things later.. For now I would really appreciate if someone can confirm that the iptables rule I am using here is suitable for that purpose, or if there's any better way to do it... Thanks a lot for your help! Bz.

I am guessing this is because the windows machine are running different versions of windows, XP and Seven, so the ports configuration looks a bit cranky here : windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/…

I am no iptables guru by any means, but I wrote the above rule a while ago to allow another network service on the exact same machines and it worked like a charm so I can't see why that same rule would not be suitable for NTFS shares...unless I don't have the complete list of all the ports involved....

Thanks a lot for your help, I really appreciate... Here is an example of the iptables rule I use : iptables -t nat -A PREROUTING -i eth0 -p udp --dport 137 -j DNAT --to 10.127.255.252:137
