Hi Chris,

Welcone to CentOS.  I think you will enjoy it.

One other thing to add to Jim's response... if you want to do a quick
test if iptables is the issue, you can use a command such at "service
iptables stop" to shut it down (there are other ways, but this one is
basically the same as the "service smb start" command you are already

Take care,
