Accessing a Samba share

Problem Description
I’ve configured an open share on Samba that encompasses the OS disk and have an internal connection set directly to my firewall. Presently UPnP is disabled if that’s relevant somehow.

I have an internal connection, the system has a static IP, and scanning for SMB connections on a Windows system through “Get-SmbConnection” doesn’t show any results.

Are there port forwards that need to be made on the firewall? Most other local server instances communicate just fine.
