[Samba] 'Not listening for calling name'

This seems to indicate that your netbios name is set wrong.
Run 'testparm < /dev/null | grep -i netbios' and see what it thinks it is
if it says something other than netbios name = SAMBA then you need to work
out what smb.conf samba is actually looking at :
'testparm < /dev/null | grep smb.conf' should tell you that.
and then you can alter the netbios name to SAMBA and everything should work.
A trick I used once when I needed to look at all the options to play with
was to redirect the output of testparm to the smb.conf - this gave me a
very long smb.conf with lots to play with! I don't know how recommended
that is though (I would imagine not at all because parameters change from
rev. to rev.).

I am not a member of the samba team,
and anything that I say may not be as
accurate as a response from one of the
team. I reply to save those more
qualified time, which can more usefully
be spent developing SAMBA further.
