confusing configuration question

I am trying to set up SAMBA on a RedHat Linux box, running
SAMBA 2.0.7. On my local net the smb.conf file listed below
works fine. But I need to share the SAMBA directories beyond my
local net and want to be able to use the "hosts allow" directive.
However when that line is not commented out, I get the following
error on the server: "Not listening for calling name" and am not able
to connect to the SAMBA Directories.
So the working smb.conf is here:
netbios name = MANDALA
workgroup = WORK-GROUP
wins support = no
; hosts allow = XXX.XXX.XXX. 127.
interfaces = XXX.XXX.XXX.X
security = user
log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
encrypt passwords = yes
remote announce = 66.31.XXX.XX
guest ok = yes
read only = no
comment = temporary files
path = /tmp
read only = yes
username = administrator
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
