Does anybody know what ports are used when I run net use * \servernameshare PWD /User:USER ? The firewall is stopping it somewhere although ports 137, 139, 445, and 8471-8477 are open on the firewall. It eventually times out with "System error 53 has occurred - The Network Path was not Found" With all ports open it works immediately and maps the drive - but this is not practical when in production.

    What server and client OS versions are you running on? The ports you listed (particularly 137-139 and 445) are used for Windows print and file serving, so that should be okay.

    What result comes from running [ ping servername ] and [ net view \\servername ] from your Windows PC?
