Port 139 and 445 are blocked on Windows 7

August 22, 2011 at 15:30:45
Specs: Windows 7
I'm having problems with opening port 139 & 445. My Windows local firewall is turned off. I tried, from a different PC, telneting to my system - "C:\telnet machinename 139" - Could not open connection to host, on port 139: connect failed.

I think that my cisco security agent is blocking it - pretty sure it is. If so, how do I configure CSA to open ports 139 and 445? If you don't believe its CSA what could it be? I'd like to also open up port 80.

Thanks in advance.

I see no mention of you configuring telnet to respond on port 139 so I have to assume you don't know it normally uses port 25.

You are on a lan so you shouldn't have to open ports to use them. Just use the correct ones.
