I think this is a configuration problem though.  If you use the
'hosts allow' parameter and connecting clients do not have
reverse ip addresses in the DNS then the connection will be
blocked.  If this is the case then the samba log file should be
filled with messages like 'gethostbyaddr failed for a.b.c.d' and
'denied connection from a.b.c.d'.

A solution would be to use the 'wins hook' to set up a dynamic
dns thing, put all DHCP ip addresses in the DNS, or update the
documentation. (-:
