port 139 and 445 being blocked by Superpipe 155

port 139 and 445 being blocked by Superpipe 155

I have a WAN that is located in two cities and is connected by TWO Lucent Superpipe 155 routers over a T1 line.  I am able to map drives and view shares on a new server that I setup on the local network, but I cannot see them over the WAN. I can see the shares on the Windows 2000 server that it is replacing.  If I do a portqry on both servers from the local network it shows ports 139 and 445 as "Listening", however, when I run the same command over the WAN link, ports 139 and 445 show Listening on my old server, but "filtered" on my new server.  I didn't setup the WAN link, and I've never used a Lucent Superpipe.  Their website seems to not have any info on it either.  Does this Superpipe router have the ability to filter certain ports for certain addresses, or is it an all-or-nothing type setup?  I have looked through the filter section and the firewall section of the router (via telnet), but I don't see ANYTHING setup that would either block the ports to my new server, or allow the ports for my old server.  Does anyone have any hints on how to allow those ports through to the other side of the WAN?  I am able to ping both machines by name or address, so I am not having a name resolution issue.  I've setup HOSTS files and LMHOSTS files with no affect on the situation.  It truly seems to be something blocking those ports between the cities, but it is allowing the ports through for my older servers.  I'm at a loss.Any ideas?
