Fix you smb.conf first, and verify you setup.

I quote. 
Names can contain a period, but names can't start with a period.
Periods should not be used in Microsoft Windows 2000 or later versions of
The use of NetBIOS scopes in names is a legacy configuration. It shouldn't

Fix it and it will work again. 

I suggest, clean up the smb.conf.. Make it small, make it work, then add
extra options you might need again.
