Strange error message...

I just installed Samba 2.2.7-SuSE on a SuSE Linux 8.2.

Even with the simplest configuration file I can't get it working.

I have the config file
  netbios name = LXT4
  workgroup = TEST
  security = user
  encrypt passwords = yes

  path = /tmp
  read only = no

and try

  smbclient -L LXT4 -N
the answer is quite fast:
  added interface ip= bcast= nmask=
  added interface ip= bcast= nmask=
then a long pause, and:
  session setup failed: Call timed out: server did not respond after 20000

There are no error messages in the log file.

Can someone imagine what this means ? Which server doesn't respond?

Thanks for all hints,
