[Samba] Failed to send packet on .255

Hi All,

On my first internal NIC, Samba is working perfectly.

On my new, second internal NIC, I am getting the following in my
messages log:

Packet send failed to ERRNO=Operation not permitted

send_netbios_packet: send_packet() to IP port 137 failed

I though .255 was a reserved address.  What is the error all about?
There is only one computer on my new second nic: and
it is in test phase.

Many thanks,
