Dear all

We are using a definition of rules which has perfectly worked with SuSE8.2 and 
vmware and a local samba on some clients.

The systems got an update to 9.2.

Now we got a very strange problem which probably could belong to an firewall 
definition problem. 
After booting of the system the samba connection to vmware works perfect but a 
few hours later it isn't possible to copy a file to the vmware share. But it 
is possible to move a file. In the log files I see a lot of error message 
about broadcasting to the samba net adress 

Is this a known problem any hints are welcome.
