Hi list,

I used an old PII/266 to install Smoothwall (which is running
linux, yes I know...) for protecting my admin winxp-box. After
setting upp rules to allow for DNS-connections and dito for our
DCc, it now seems like it's working fine. Except for one thing -  I
can't browse our domain/network using "My Network Places". Mapping
drives etc works fine, but one only thing doesn't.

Would anybody know why? Are particular ports associated with
browsing a network, as I opened ports 389 (to the DCs), ports
137-138 (for other non-DCs i have mapped), port 53 (to the uni
AD-DNSes). Anything else I need to open to allow for network
