I use samba to share the folder on my Kubuntu machine with the XBOX that I use as media center. After installing Firestarter, I couldn’t access anymore the folder from any computer in my home network, XBOX included. Of course I have enabled the Samba policy in Firestarter (Port: 137-139 445) and my network address (192.168.1.0/24), but still no results.
An explanation of the reason can be found in this thread of the Ubuntu Forum : http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=190542&highlight=samba+windows+unauthorized+access
The solution is rather simple. Open Firestarter, then Edit -> Preferences -> Advanced Option, just remove the check on “Block broadcast from external network”.
That’s it. You will be able to run Firestarter and view you Samba share again.
