NT SMB connectivity

By elfer ·
OK, guys and gals,
I am trying to "block" access to a NT 4 server through the INTERNET. I don't want anybody to be able to get to or connect to the default system shares, such as \\servername\c$, etc... I am blocking ports tcp and udp 135-139 on the router, but I can still get to those shares. What am I missing? Is there more ports to be blocked ?
Thanks,
D
P.S. turning off the server service is not going to work; the server is dual-homed and I need access from the "other" side.

On the bindings tab of the Network Control Panel, select "all adapters" in the drop down list. Select the adapter that is attached to the router's subnet, and disable the binding between that adapter and "WINS Client(TCP/IP)".

This is awesome ! That worked great. Sometimes it's the obvious we don't see.

Thanks so much for your solution.
