Windows Sharing problem from WLC 5508 to wired LAN

Dear All,

I'm having problem with windows sharing (file/printer sharing) from Wireless lan client which is connected to AP3500 and

WLC 5508 then to Nexus 7010. It's already using ip command, for example \\

WLC os version (using AP groups)

Nexus os version 4.2(6)

The weird thing is i can connect using windows sharing from wired LAN to wireless user however not vice versa.

for better explanation, here are the scenarios

1. Wireless lan to wired LAN using windows sharing - failed

1. Wired LAN to Wireless lan using windows sharing - success.

I've been analyzing by making sure that all the to end, there would be no firewall within source pc(s) and destination pc(s) and also

the ACL inside Nexus.

Been dying here to find solution for this, due to the customer is using it for file and printer sharing service.

Anyone has idea to solve this problem, i'm looking forward for any suggestion coming.

Peer to peer within wlc is using default setting which is allowed and as you may know, peer to peer permission only related between wireless client not wired one. CMIIW.
