Hi Everyone,


I have a Lion Server setup running behind an AirPort Extreme which acts as our firewall and router. I'm having an issue getting external SMB (Windows File Sharing as it's called now) working. AFP works just fine for everyone, while SMB is only working on the internal network. Externally, AFP works just fine, but SMB results in the standard "Server cannot be contacted, etc." error - on both Macs and Windows machines.


I have tried numerous times to add a port mapping for SMB within the Server app and within the AirPort Utility. It doesn't work in either spot. I've restarted the APE too many times to count, and the same with the server itself. Anyone have any ideas? Have the SMB ports changed in Lion? Any help would be greatly appreciated - I'm pulling my hair out at this point!
