Hello, I've recently setup samba to run on my server, and it works perfectly well within my LAN. I can access all the shares.. However, I cannot access the shares over the internet.
I've tried connecting by IP and by name, but it fails either way. The ports are forwarded correctly through my router... BUT, when I run port scans from outside the LAN, they always return claiming the ports (137, 138, 139, 445) are inaccessible. When I check the logs in my router, it shows blocking other ports which are not forwarded, but it is not blocking these. I've even called my ISP, and they say that no ports are blocked... So.. what the hell?
I assume there is a problem with my configuration file.. Anyone have an idea as to what the problem may be?
In my config file, I have "hosts allow = all" and no firewall installed, aside from the router. Thanks for any help!
