Large file transfers fail through SuSE firewall

I'm using SuSE 9.3 as a router between 2 networks (eth0 = & eth1 I'm having a problem when
transferring large files or a large amount of multiple files. I get an
error message stating the network share is unavailable.

If I transfer from to using Windows
Explorer I get the network share is unavailable after a few moments.
I've tailed (tail -f /var/log/firewall | grep the
firewall log and watched a tcpdump on eth0 and eth1. There aren't any
error messages displayed or anything. The packets just stop.

I have allowed access from eth0 to eth1 but not from eth1 to eth0.
Could this be the problem? I need to open a port possibly for Windows
network shares?

Thanks for any help!
