I've encountered a strange error.  I have samba 2.2.7 installed on
freebsd 4.7.  I've run testparm on the smb.conf and don't see any
errors.  I can connect to a service from a windows 2k machine using
standard net use commands.  

HOWEVER, when I try to use smbclient from another machine to view my
bsd samba, I get the following error:

bash-2.05a$ smbclient -L //npcenter
added interface ip= bcast=
session request to NPCENTER failed (Called name not present)
Anonymous login successful
Domain=[CUI] OS=[Windows 5.0] Server=[Windows 2000 LAN Manager]
tree connect failed: NT_STATUS_DUPLICATE_NAME

The other strange symptom is when I connect using the windows machine
a proper log is created in the samba logging directory.  However, no
log is created for the samba box (running red hat) that attempts to
use smbclient -L.

this is strange.  any thoughts?
