Hi Marc,

Answers as follows:

- The linux VB is on a different network than the server

- I have a log file generated for that VB ipaddress with errors:

getpeername failed. Error was Transport endpoint is not connected
  read_fd_with_timeout: client read error = Connection timed out.
closed connection to service

-No firewalls between server and host or on host

You are giving to less information, to provide any help.

- Is the Linux in VB in the same network than the server? Or maybe the VB network is using NAT to connect?

- Anything in the logfiles on the Samba server? At least you should see the connection try. If not, increase the loglevel to 2 or 3.

- Any firewall on the VB Linux or on it's host? Or between them and the server?

- ....
