I am having some DFS issues and have narrowed it down to a windows firewall issue.  When the firewall is on I cannot connect to the share and FRS does not work between two different shares.  When the firewall is off, I can connect to the share and FRS works.

My question is, what needs to be added to windows firewall in order for DFS and FRS to work properly.

I have added the following:
TCP - 137, 139, 389, 135, 445
UDP - 137, 138, 389, 445
File and Printer Sharing

But still no success.  What else needs to be done?

Thanks in advance.
