What does ipchains -L on the machine that can't connect show?
Try doing an "/etc/rc.d/init.d/ipchains stop" then trying it again.  If it
works, it's your firewall settings.

well when I do an NMAP localhost I show that 139 is open. But I can't Nmap
to the host in question from another machine.
I can ftp to the box and http, but I can't connect via samba.
Its starting to look like something with the RH config that changed (I can't
imagine what) and I'm sorry if this is off topic now, but I'm at a loss.
what else can I look at?

Well had the samba on 7.3 (samba 2.2.5) working for most of this week. 
Its still running on the box and from the box I can connect to smbclient -L
name -N.
When I move to another RH 7.3 and do the same smbclient I get a connection
error connecting to xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx:139 (connection refused)
error connecting to xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (connection refused)
now I made no changes to this samba config from Wednesday until this morning
(Friday) and I know the connection was working okay as of 5pm last night.
I've rebooted the RH 7.3 box, Ive checked the hosts allow =    parameter and
the ip ranges are in there.
I'm at a loss. Trying now to figure out how to check to see if the 139 port
is open or blocked.
any suggestions?
Thank you in advance!
