Not unless your ipfwadm -h reports a version older than 2.3.0. The -F and
"quark" don't make any sense in that command, tho. Try it like this:
ipfwadm -I -a deny -P udp -S 22.214.171.124/21 -D 126.96.36.199/21 137 138
I know I told you earlier to use 137:139, but 139 is TCP only, so instead,
add a second rule like this:
ipfwadm -I -a deny -P tcp -S 188.8.131.52/21 -D 184.108.40.206/21 137:139
Note that this specifically blocks NetBIOS. As Alan suggested, you prolly
want to tcpdump the segment to determine which ports are actually being
used by M$. They could be something other than NetBIOS (I made an
assumption). You may also want to investigate the other options for
ipfwadm, including -y which could be useful for the TCP rule.
