[Samba] smbclient lookup fails when querying local machine

No such luck:

in smb.conf:
name resolve order = host bcast

boothost:~# smbclient -L -Uvalidusr
added interface ip= bcast= nmask=
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.
