[SOLVED] Windows Server 2016 SMB not working

Hey all,
Just set up a Pfsense box, immediately after setting it up my WS2016 file server doesn’t seem to be sharing files.

I’ve run diagnostics on the server and it is saying the firewall is the issue but Win firewall doesn’t look to be blocking it (at least rule wise)

I can remote into the server, and perf tests show gigabit speeds.
After running a port scan it seems that the SMB port isn’t open for some reason.

I don’t see why pfsense would be the culprit but don’t wanna rule it out just in case.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Reset the Network Interfaces on the server and it fixed it
