Yes I'm not sure where that's coming from but I should fix that.

Looking back over my smb.conf, I'm not sure why I put that in there back
when I first set up Samba for our lab. Maybe at the time I thought it was
a desirable option for some reason, but from what I read in the
documentation now it seems that this option is only useful for multi-homed
machines, which we don't have.
Well I finally got the thing to work! At least on the one client that I've
tried it on so far. What I did was to delete the socket address command
from the smb.conf, and add 'wins server = 22.214.171.124'.
