I can duplicate your situation (in both directions) by turning off
the nmbd daemon on my server. Do you have nmbd running on the server?
If so, is a firewall blocking it? Which port you ask?

cat services | grep -i netbios
netbios-ns	137/tcp				# NETBIOS Name Service
netbios-ns	137/udp
netbios-dgm	138/tcp				# NETBIOS Datagram Service
netbios-dgm	138/udp
netbios-ssn	139/tcp				# NETBIOS session service
netbios-ssn	139/udp
Looks like port 137. Just guessing.
