Cannot allow outgoing UDP Ports 137 & 138


In the “Firewall Settings”, under “My Port Sets”, I added under “Privileged Ports”, ports # 137 and # 138 separately. There is no “In” prefix to the port number and I therefore assume that it applies to outgoing and incoming traffic.

However, when I check in the “Summary” page, under the “Network Defense” item, I still see under “Firewall Events” messages indicating that these ports are being blocked!

This prevents accessing the other computer located in my private network and therefore sharing files and printer.

Any suggestion will be appreciated,
