[Samba] 'Not listening for calling name'

I'm having a strange problem with samba, 2.2.3a running on an 
out-of-the-box SuSE 8.0 system. This is the first time I've set it up 
(hence the dumb questions I was asking on here a day or two ago). I've now 
worked my way through diagnosis.txt and a couple of odd netBIOS issues with 
the NT4 PDC, and at last I have some shares set up that my Windows client 
can use quite happily. However smbclient on the local machine comes up with 
the following error:

wild:~ # smbclient //wild/art -U username%password
added interface ip= bcast= nmask=
added interface ip= bcast= nmask=
session request to WILD failed (Not listening for calling name)
session request to *SMBSERVER failed (Not listening for calling name)

smbd and nmbd are running as daemons; this is my smb.conf:

         netbios name = SAMBA
         workgroup = DOMAIN1
         os level = 2
         wins server =
         hosts allow = 172.17.3. 127.
         encrypt passwords = yes
         guest account = Nobody
         map to guest = Bad User
         add user script = /usr/sbin/useradd %u
         delete user script = /usr/sbin/userdel %u
         unix password sync = yes
         passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
         passwd chat = "New password:*" %n\n "Re-enter new password:*" %n\n 
sword changed*"
         log file = /var/log/samba/%m
         log level = 3
         security = domain
         password server =
         local master = No
         interfaces = lo eth0
         wins support = no
         wins server =
         character set = ISO8859-15
         client code page = 850
         veto files = /*.eml/*.nws/riched20.dll/*.{*}/
         comment = Linux home directory for Vicky
         browseable = no
         valid users = vclarke root Administrator
         path = /home/vclarke
         read only = no
         create mask = 0600
         directory mask = 0700
         comment = PC home directories
         path = /share/pchomes/%S
         read only = No
         create mask = 0640
         directory mask = 0750
         browseable = No
         writeable = yes
         comment = Art directories
         path= /share/art
         read only = no
         create mask = 0666
         directory mask = 0777

Can anyone help me work out what's going wrong?

Thanks in advance,
Vicky Clarke
