ASA Clientless SSL VPN Portal with MAC OS Lion 10.7

I have a Cisco ASA 5510 8.2 (3) with clientless SSL VPN portal enabled with some bookmarks pointing to internal servers. I just installed a new Mac OS Lion Server 10.7 box and have a share on it using both AFP and SMB. My old Mac server is 10.6 with a similar share with both AFP and SMB enabled. When using the Portal browser (or bookmarks pointing to cifs://example/server), I get an error "Error contacting host" to the the 10.7 box, but browsing to the 10.6 box works fine.

I have double checked all settings on the 10.7 and permissions, everything appears correct. I can also browse internally via SMB from Windows XP/Windows 7 using default UNC paths \\example\server, etc., to the 10.7 box.

From what I have read, the 10.7 has a completly different design to the SMB versus the earlier 10.6. (

Has anyone else experienced anything like this? I have read various forums, but most pertain to VPN client running on OS 10.7, but nothing particular to the ASA portal not being able to connect to the SMB share on the MAC OS Lion 10.7

Thank you.
