[Samba] Re: Can't access remote server

I've run iptables -L and iptables -t nat -L and there are no settings. I've
setup iptables lots of times before so I'm pretty familiar with it.
A few things that are bugging me is that I have a smb entry in my
/etc/rc.d/init.d but no nmbd entry. Has this been merged into one entry? It
doesn't seem like my nmb functionality is actually broken as nmblookup -B
webdev.ic2.org __SAMBA__ runs successfully on the server.
However, this command when run from a remote machine fails:
[kwang at gorgon kwang]$ nmblookup -B webdev.ic2.org __SAMBA__
querying __SAMBA__ on 18.104.22.168
name_query failed to find name __SAMBA__
DIAGNOSIS.txt has been pretty helpful, but I'm stuck on Test 8. I'm not sure
how to "fixup the nmbd installation" but I've managed to do all the other
recommended solutions with no success.
Anyway, thanks for your help so far.
