Why not 2.2.8a?  There bug fixes between the two revs.

You need a "interfaces" line in your smb.conf config file.

The underlying problem is that smbclient cannot find a correct interface
from which to send messages.  I don't know why this would be the case,
unless your underlying TCP/IP network configuration is not correct somehow. 
You'd probably need to run ifconfig to check that the interfaces are
correctly set up, and try pinging another device on your network.  Basic
stuff, I know, but your problem description is also quite basic.
