You have a problem with the 2 computers being able to talk to each other, a 
"name resolution" problem. I see you have configured samba to act as a "wins" 
server for your network. Is there another MS server acting as a wins server or 
domain controller?

Also, basic name resolution. Are you using /etc/hosts for name resolution or 
are you using a DNS. If so is it configured properly? Are you using dhcp to get 
your IP or do you have static IPs assigned? This is where the immediate problem 
lies. Your config look OK
