Yes, I've always had good luck with this configuration too.
I believe the problem is Vista (Home Premium).
I can list the resources on my old P3 XP machine just fine with
smbclient -L 192.168.0.104
(it asks for a password, which I enter).
When I try to list the shares on the Vista box:
===[root] /usr/local/share/apsfilter > smbclient -L 192.168.0.20
smbclient in free(): error: junk pointer, too high to make sense
Abort trap: 6 (core dumped)
and then I'm stuck :-(
I had to hack the registry in the Vista machine in order for it to see
and use a share on my FreeBSD hard drive, and that works fine. But since
moving from XP to Vista, I can't seem to see or use any shares on the
Vista box from FreeBSD (and I have 6.2R now and the versions of samba
are noted above).
I'm starting to look around samba.org but nothing is popping up just yet.
