i'm using redhat 7, and ipchains for the firewall,
i open all connection to outside
and allow all connection from other network(202.???.???.???) to inside (192.168.12.0/24)

INPUT         - ACCEPT
OUTPUT        - ACCEPT
FORWARD       - MASQ
From inside(192.168.12.0/24) to outside allow all
From other public 202.???.???.0/24 to inside allow all

all the connection is ok, but i always got problem with
mapping,
if i map a drive to other network (202.???.???.???) from the inside network (192.168.12.0/24) after sometime it will give a timeout, but then if you click again on the drive... it will be ok again...

i don't why this happen (the timeout)... can i set no timeout.. so the mapped drive will always connected?

thanks

Your default policy for forwarding is MASQ. You cannot masquerade SMB traffic without getting the error you mention. You must create rules which opens (atleast) port 135-139 between the two nets WITHOUT masquerading (which most likely will break something else) But that is the breaks :)

create rules which opens port 135-139 without masquerading??
what do you mean by that?
ipchains -A forward -s 192?????? -d 203?????? 135:139 (without -j MASQ? is it??)

-A forward -s 192.168??? -d 203??? -p TCP --destination-port 135:139 -j ACCEPT and that has to come before the masquerade for the same network. And since you are using "dark" IP's (the 192.168 net) this probably will not wor, but it is the only way to get a reliable SMB connection. You also of cource need bidirectional routing between the networks.

oh, you need to add -b (bidirectional) to that rule aswell.
