In addition to the suggestions proposed by someone else you 
must use

valid users = your_username
allow hosts = IP_Address

to limit access to your username and to the NT's IP address.

It is also preferable to disable all browsing services:

local master = false
domain master = false
wins support = false
os level = 0
