Re: [Question #72444]: (G)UFW and Windows Network file/printer sharing


Question #72444 on Gufw changed:

Yaron Sheffer proposed the following answer:
I am on Maverick. Until now I have had to disable the firewall from gufw
every time I access a Windows share/printer (otherwise I get "Cannot
Mount" from Nautilus).

Using the instructions in this thread I finally managed to have the
firewall enabled AND Windows shares accessible at the same time, BUT
there was a bit more magic involved.

UFW appears to be mispackaged in Maverick, and only has one application
profile included. I had to download the app profiles from
(follow the link "download them all from here"), extract the file and
put the profiles under /etc/ufw/applications.d/. Then:

sudo ufw enable
sudo ufw allow samba
sudo ufw allow from any app samba

Good luck!
