Security implications of SMB through masquerading firewall?

Hi,

I would like to allow users behind a masquerading firewall access to SMB
shares outside. For that, I have configured SuSE firewall as follows:

FW_SERVICES_INTERNAL_TCP="netbios-ssn"
FW_SERVICES_INTERNAL_UDP="netbios-ns netbios-dgm"

(netbios-ns = 137, netbios-dgm = 138, netbios-ssn = 139)

Is this reasonably safe? Are there any better ways to do that?


Thanks,
Andreas.
