You are in luck. This comes from the RecentFAQ doc in text docs.  You can

 If you get this when talking to a Samba box then it means that your
 global "hosts allow" or "hosts deny" settings are causing the Samba
 server to refuse the connection.

 Look carefully at your "hosts allow" and "hosts deny" lines in the
 global section of smb.conf.

 It can also be a problem with reverse DNS lookups not functioning
 correctly, leading to the remote host identity not being able to
 be confirmed, but that is less likely.
