You might do better to ask this question on a RedHat linux list - this list

Sorry, I don't understand this. How can you get a reply if all the packets
are getting lost? Would you mind giving the output that shows this please?

Not sure about this last one. I've seen it before but haven't used Samba in a
while so I don't remember!
Good luck sorting it all out!
