You might also post your smb.conf file to aid people in assisting you.

I like the shutting down the firewall idea. That could be it.

One other idea I have without seeing the smb.conf is to make sure that 
the IP address of the machine giving you that error is among those 
allowed in smb.conf.  If your smb.conf restricts access to a certain IP 
range, then if this machine is not in that range it would be denied 
access in the way you describe.
