I am having trouble with on of my Samba Servers.

The daemons don't seem to be responding. I know they are running.
I can even see them listing when I do a netstat -a on my server.

However, when I do the following smbclient command I get the following
error message.

./smbclient -U username -L servername ( I get the same error if I use a
name,IP address, or local )
The username does exist created with smbpasswd -a

I get this error message.

session request to "Server name" failed (Call returned zero bytes (EOF)
session request to *SMBSERVER failed (Call returned zero bytes (EOF)
