	Hmmm, not sure but the smb.conf man pages says that the
'hosts allow' parameter is a comma separated list, *maybe* that
could be the cause of your problem.

	And I don't think that your workstations are trying to
access the server without an IP address, if you set the IP
address without the DHCP, does the error still appears?

	Kind regards,
