that's very strange, you are connecting correctly to your own box, but
that isn't Samba responding. Samba cannot generate a type 0x82 session
response (that's what "Called name not present" means). Samba can
generate a type 0x81 if your "hosts allow" setting is wrong, but
that's all.

I suspect you have another SMB server installed on this box. Remove it :)
