         comment = restricted access
         path = /home/epluskwa
         create mask = 0775
         valid users = epluskwa,root
         read only = no

You defined ep to only be accessible for epluskwa and root, but you 
connected as CITNET\ed pluskwa. This does not match and so access to the 
share is denied

Maybe the broadcast address is not correctly configured for the NIC?
Please check your network settings.
