No such luck:
name resolve order = host bcast
boothost:~# smbclient -L 172.21.23.1 -Uvalidusr
added interface ip=172.21.23.1 bcast=172.21.23.255 nmask=255.255.255.0
session setup failed: Call timed out: server did not respond after 20000 milliseconds
Can bad WINS entries affect results even if WINS isn't in the "name resolve order"?

In this case using -L 172.21... instead of -L BH1230 should work.
There was a post earlier with the subject "Changed IP address" that
recommended editing wins.dat to fix the IP problem.
