Parameters of the type "client something" are for when samba acts as a
client (ie: smbclient), not for samba's clients.

To do what you want, you need to use "max protocol = ..."  "min
protocol = ..", without "client".

Recents samba versions support "max server protocol" as an alternative
(same meaning) of "max protocol".
