In general:

FW_SERVICES_INT_TCP="microsoft-ds netbios-dgm netbios-ns netbios-ssn"

and on any samba server:


Setting TRUSTED_NETS will open the ports on all network interfaces, and
it is certainly not necessary to open -all- highports for UDP.

FYI, the port numbers are (see /etc/services)

netbios-ns 137
netbios-dgm 138
netbios-ssn 139
microsoft-ds 445
