Config problem

I'm using 1.9.18p7 with RedHat 2.0.35
/etc/smb.conf contains

hosts allow = myhost
/etc/lmhosts contains

myhost's-IP-address    myhost
smbd and nmbd are run as daemons.

When I run smbclient //myhost/tmp, I get 'not listening for calling name',
but if I specify hosts allow = myhost's-IP-address it works OK. Why does it
resolve myhost on the command line but not in the .conf file?
