Thank you!!!

The problem is now solved. Following your advice, I got to use a network
sniffer, and found what was happening. The local network was badly
configured in the device, so broadcast address was not the same that in
the host machine.

I know that this is not a samba problem, but I thought it was, and I was
really stuck and needed some input to go forward.

Thank you again!
