Re my earlier posting today: A little more work and persistence finally 
paid off. My problem turned out to be the firewall on the Samba server 
running Fedora. After going back to the aarly chapters in the book and 
doing some basic pings and telnets to the ports in question it became 
clear what was going on.

Sorry for the wasted bandwidth.
