Hi everyone.
I want to share my SMB to my PC which is on other subnet.

My network are below and I am using pfSense as the Router.
TrueNAS 192.168.161.0/24
PC 192.168.60.0/24

I find that I can see the SMB in 192.168.161.0/24 but I cannot see it in 192.168.60.0/24.

Any suggestion are welcome. Thank you.

Firewall rules and routing.

Are you using the "network" browsing option to "see" the SMB share? or are you connecting via the IP address?

Thank you for your reply. I am using network browsing option in the "Network" Page.
I create a Pass Rule to the NAS IP and find that I have to open Port 445.
Now I can connect via \\domain\ or \\ip\ to the SMB share.
