netstat -nap | grep 139

Like this:

[root at duron]# netstat -nap | grep 139
tcp        0      0   *               LISTEN
tcp        0      0 193.338.203.231:139      193.338.203.231:53728
tcp        0      0 193.338.203.231:53728    193.338.203.231:139

As you can see there are some connections because I do a tunnel but the
important part is the LISTEN / smbd line. How does the output of the command
look in your case?

Let me guess: DomainB is Samba?! :->

Because you haven't specify in the command line the password. man smbclient
and look how to specify the password, that's not the ideea.

Heck! Is there ANY smbd running on your machine? :-o
