Enable Broadcast requests in YaST Firewall for your local network.
You will find it listed in left pane of firewall setup window.
For instance and nmblookup will work with firewall on.

It is openSUSE/SUSE perk to keep all stuff that is not used closed, which is
good from security stand point.

The only problem is to convince openSUSE guys that not having easy way to
connect to other computers on local network is not the way to increase number
of users, which is directly proportional to number of customers [1].

[1] In my humble understanding, customer is legal or physical entity that pays
for goods or services with money, goods, or services.
