Hi Ralph,

Thanks again for your suggestion and sorry it has taken me so long to
respond. To provide an update, I did upgrade to Samba 4.1.15 but have
still been unsuccessful in viewing the shares on my Mac OS X machine. 

In the following examples:
The Linux box is named 'beedrill' and my username is 'amjam'
The Mac OS X box is named 'bulbasaur' and my username is 'AJames'

[amjam at beedrill ~ ]% smbtree -U AJames
Enter AJames's password:
        \\BULBASAUR                     bulbasaur
        \\BEEDRILL                      Samba Server
                \\BEEDRILL\IPC$                 IPC Service (Samba Server)
                \\BEEDRILL\public               Public Stuff

[amjam at beedrill ~ ]% smbclient -L bulbasaur -U AJames
Enter AJames's password:
session setup failed: NT_STATUS_LOGON_FAILURE

[root at beedrill ~ ]# mount.cifs //bulbasaur/Users/AJames/Public /mnt/osx -o username=AJames
Password for AJames@//bulbasaur/Users/AJames/Public:
mount error(13): Permission denied
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)

[root at beedrill ~ ]# mount.cifs //bulbasaur/Users/AJames/Public /mnt/osx -o sec=ntlmv2,username=AJames
Password for AJames@//bulbasaur/Users/AJames/Public:
mount error(22): Invalid argument
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)

[amjam at beedrill ~ ]% ssh AJames at bulbasaur
Last login: Thu Jan 22 21:12:09 2015 from
bulbasaur:~ AJames$

I'm at a loss as to what to do next.

Best Regards,
Am Jam.
