Yes. Verify that selinux is not blocking the incoming connection from
windows. I've had that problem in the past and it's a pain.

For testing purposes only, on the linux system(s) that reject windows
SMB connection attempts, issue "setenforce 0" and see if it then works.

If it does then work, reset that setting to "setenforce 1" (you don't want
to leave selinux disabled) then look in /var/logs to see if you can find
a log of the failure. If you can find the selinux record for the failure
it should tell you how to apply a work-around for that specific issue,
so you do not need to totally disable selinux.

Good luck!
