Dev Alpha: Samba non-functional over Wifi with

I'm creating this thread mostly so others will know I've already ticketed the problem. Please add any additional notes however.  The ticket is https://www.blackberry.com/jira/browse/BBTEN-118 though as usual it's not public yet.


The bulk of the ticket is this: "When File Sharing is enabled, the Samba server ports are not exposed on the WiFi network. I can connect via USB, but a port scan over WiFi shows neither port 139 nor 445 are open, and I can't connect via SMB with either Windows 7 or Ubuntu 12.04."


If anyone with an updated Dev Alpha ( actually can access the Samba network share over WiFi, please report here ASAP so I can update the ticket to note that it's not a universal problem after all.

I've been able to reproduce this as well.  Looks like a valid find.  Thanks for reporting it.
