How are you trying to connect to the server? Have you tried typing in 
\\<IP ADDRESS> from the run prompt on a windows box that you have 
previously pinged from successfully? Are you getting an error after 
seeing the shares or before even seeing the server? Samba can be told to 
allow hosts from a certain IP address range - check your smb.conf for 
network restrictions.
