Re: Validating NT thought a natting firewall
There are the old SMB protocol rules that say one authenticated conection
for one IP, these could be hanging you up. I would bypass winblows
alltogether with samba and have it forward(by resharing mounted shares)
all the shares/authentication.
Another thing you could try is using tcpdump or iptraf to see what if any
connections your not allowing. Also giving the nat box one IP for each IP
it's nating for might fix the problem, but defeat the purpose of the nat.
