Problems connecting to Samba server running 2.07

Please note before reading that I have approx. 6 months
of Samba support experience on a basic/intermediate level
but had never built a Samba server until yesterday.  I
am also reading the O'Reilly book, but have not found information
leading me to resolve this isue.

In a nutshell, while I have a somewhat-basic Samba server running
on a Solaris 2.5.1 box that is located remotely, I am 
having problems trying to connect to it.  I can run 
testparm to check parameters just fine and can
also run smbclient as well.  

However, the NT box I'm trying to connect to the server from is
in a LAN where it uses domains and no workgroups.  

Here's the output from running smbclient:

# smbclient -U% -L localhost

doing parameter socket options = TCP_NODELAY IPTOS_LOWDELAY
doing parameter guest ok = no
