The first thing that occurs to me (which might be completely wrong) is
to check your nameserving on the new machine.  Samba only accepts
connections from named hosts and it is possible that the new server has
an incorrectly configured DNS - try pinging the clients by name to see
if they're addressable.

The error messages I received when I discovered this are different from
what your log files show, but it's worth a look I guess.
