Purely numeric service name

	I have a problem accessing NT boxes which have a service (host) name
which is purely numeric, smbclient insists on treating it as an ip number.

For example:-
/opt/samba/bin/smbclient \\\\06842\\BACKUP xxxxx  -U xxxxx

returns :-

Connecting to at port 139    
Connection to 06842 failed 

I am using HPUX 10.2 and samba version 2.0.4b. 

Surely it should be possible to connect to NT boxes with numeric names.
