Samba servers are listening to ports 445 and 139 by default. However, most
authors recommend to keep firewall port 445 closed, e.g. Opening this port in the
server firewall, or specifying port=139 in the mount.cifs command on the
client, does the trick in my situation.

See /etc/sysconfig/SuSEfirewall2.d/services/samba-server and I'm happy
to say SuSEfirewall uses decent and right defaults.

What do we need to make the use of SuSEfirewall easier?

The article at offers a lot of input and details but I
fear for most users this is not an easy way to use it.
