Default Problem appears to be solved

The answer to the question, "why does nmap show that ports are closed when the ISPConfig says that they are open" is, don't trust nmap.

I used ISPConfig to open the following ports:

Samba 137 udp yes
Samba 138 udp yes
Samba 139 udp yes
Samba 445 udp yes
Samba 137 tcp yes
Samba 138 tcp yes
Samba 139 tcp yes
Samba 445 tcp yes

The nmap command shows that the ports are closed. However, I got on my Windows XP machine and my file share worked perfectly. The conclusion, therefore, seems to be, don't trust nmap to tell you what is actually open.
