Your suggestions have been great, and have helped me solve a few other problems on different servers.

Thanks again!

Hmm, that's bizarre.  It seems like smbd is ignoring the connection on
purpose.  I'm afraid I'm out of ideas.  You could try adding "hosts
allow = 127." line to smb.conf just in case (along with your other
subnets so they can still access the server) however I don't think it
would make much difference.

I would suggest getting hold of a packet sniffer like Ethereal just to
see what's going on, but I suspect all you'd see is the initial request
being sent on port 139 and then nothing further.

Sorry I couldn't be more helpful!
