Hi, SaMBa gurus!
Sorry, if it a dumb question, but
I  had  install the samba 1.9.18p1 on my BSDi2.0.1 box (previous
version was 17p4 and it work fine) and when I try to connect to Win95
or WinNT

smbclient \\\\HostA\\ServiceB <my password>

it say me next:

Added interface ip=xxx.yy.zz.aa nmask=
Get_Hostbyname: Unknown host HOSTA.

but  HostA  was online in this local LAN and service ServiceB as
share  was presentable.
Any ideas?
If it need then that my smb.conf
----------------------------begin smb.conf---------------------
	announce version = 4.0
	character set = ISO8859-1
	deadtime = 3
	debuglevel = 2
	default = pub
	dfree command = /usr/local/samba/bin/dfree
	dns proxy = no
	encrypt passwords = yes
	hide files = /.*/*.core/
	hosts equiv = /etc/hosts.equiv
	interfaces = xxx.yy.zz.aa/
	load printers = no
	local master = yes
	lock directory = /usr/local/samba/var/locks
	log file = /usr/local/samba/var/log.smb
	lpq cache time = 5
	os level = 65
	prefered master = yes
	printing = bsd
	printcap name = /usr/local/samba/lib/printcap
	security = user
	smb passwd file = /usr/local/samba/private/smbpasswd
	smbrun = /usr/local/samba/bin/smbrun
	syslog = 0
	unix realname = yes
	workgroup = PRCNIT
	allow hosts = xxx.yy.zz.
----------------------end smb.conf-----------------------------

Thanx for advance.
