Do you have by the option 'bind interfaces only = yes' in your conf 
file? If so add your local interface to your interfaces section.
The error is that it cannot make a connection to the local interface 
(connection refused) 
here is a  example:
interfaces =
bind interfaces only = yes
Properly 'smbpasswd -a <user>' will not work to.
Or set the 'bind interfaces only = false'


NOTE: SInce is not in the private IP range I 
ussume it's directly connected to the internet, Make SURE you have 
a proper firewall installed to blok netbios packages from unwanted
