Dumb question - what happens if you use the Windows name for the
computer, instead of its IP address? I do not know about Windows 7,
but I know XP does not like it when you use the IP address instead
of the computer's name.

smbclient -L MARY-XP works.
smbclient -L 192.168.55.33 does not, even though they are the same
machine, and I can ping 192.168.55.33. On the other hand, Samba
servers will accept either form.
