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-dgm 138/tcp # NETBIOS Datagram Service
netbios-ssn 139/tcp # NETBIOS session service
Looks like port 137. Just guessing.
