Problem: browse SAMBA share from Windows machine is slow

Browsing a Samba share on my Ubuntu fileserver (with ufw enable) from my Windows 7 machine is very slow. I found on ufw log that my windows machine is trying to connect to Ubuntu fileserver on port 80 (that is not allowed by ufw).
Putting port 80 in rejecting mode solve the problem:

sudo ufw reject 80
