When I use smbclient to access an IOMEGA NAS server, smbclient tries to access port 445 for a full five minutes before timing out:
[2004/02/20 17:48:24, 10] lib/gencache.c:gencache_get(262) Returning valid cache entry: key = NBT/NAS_120_1#20, value = 192.168.123.161:0, timeout = Fri Feb 20 17:53:22 2004
[2004/02/20 17:48:24, 5] libsmb/namecache.c:namecache_fetch(201) name nas_120_1#20 found. [2004/02/20 17:48:24, 3] lib/util_sock.c:open_socket_out(698) Connecting to 192.168.123.161 at port 445 [2004/02/20 17:51:38, 2] lib/util_sock.c:open_socket_out(733) error connecting to 192.168.123.161:445 (Connection timed out)
Next, smbclient goes on to contact it on port 139, and all works great right away.
Can I direct smbclient to not use 445? Anyone have an idea why smbclient is getting stuck in this tar pit for five minutes?
From 'man smbclient':
-p port This number is the TCP port number that will be used when making connections to the server. The standard (well-known) TCP port number for an SMB/CIFS server is 139, which is the default.
