When you use -L <ip> it bypasses WINS, hosts, lmhosts, etc. altogether
and connects directly to that IP address. So that would explain why -L
BH1230 doesn't work, because WINS might be mapping back to an IP, but
you still get the timeout when connecting to that IP anyway.
Try running "netstat -lnp | grep smbd" to get a list of all ports that
Samba has open, and make sure they're all opened on the firewall
(including the 'lo' interface.) I have a feeling there are two or
three different ports that need to be opened.
