    I just finally got around to installing my xmas present. I got most everything going except.

    When I turn on the firewall, I can no longer access the shares on my windows computer. I added all possible under server pref once I turn the firewall on. I hate to run it without the firewall

    Does this machine have an external IP address? If you're on your own private network with no ports directly mapped to the OS X server then you really don't need to run the firewall. You can add a custom rule to say any traffic from the windows machines is allowed in, or add a rule for each port. I want to say that it's 137, 138, 139, 445 UDP and TCP.

    Server Admin -> Firewall -> Settings -> Advanced
