Samba servers are listening to ports 445 and 139 by default. However, most
authors recommend to keep firewall port 445 closed, e.g.
http://en.opensuse.org/Firewall_on_simple_samba_LAN. 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 en.openSUSE.org offers a lot of input and details but I
fear for most users this is not an easy way to use it.
