"Port 139/tcp is "netbios-ssn" and 445/tcp is "microsoft-ds", what are these needed for? I wondered in PC-BSD versions prior to 1.4... "

I'm sure you know, but just for completeness I'll add that they're used by Samba to connect to Windows shares.

"I'm sure you know, but just for completeness I'll add that they're used by Samba to connect to Windows shares."

In fact, I assumed it would have something to do with MICROS~1 products, but I really didn't know, because I don't use any of them and didn't come into closer contact with them for more than 10 years now. For things like mount_smbfs they are not needed (tested this once, we had one "Windows" PC in our LAN at work). I don't know exactly how "Windows" PCs share ressources, so thanks for this information.
