Not authorized to login from this station

Can any point me in the right direction to solve this one?

I get a: "this account is not authorized to login from  this station" 
message when I try to "Map Network Drive" from  NT4server SP4 to 
my RH Linux 6.0 Samba 2.0.3, yet I can open a  telnet session 
from the NT machine to Linux using this user, and,  in a linux 
xterm window I can list the samba services using 
smbclient -L localhost -U user%password 
I am also able to mount a NT4 share on a linux mountpoint, so it 
works the other way round.
