Do both the unix server and the assigned client address exist in the same
broadcast domain? I ask because in the following output ...

praxisserver:~ # smbclient -L \\
added interface ip= bcast=
error connecting to (Connection refused)
Error connecting to (Connection refused)
Connection to failed
praxisserver:~ #

... it says "added interface ip= bcast=" on the
unix command line output. A typical IPsec configuration would hand out
client addresses from a separate range of addresses from the one used on
the private network. This is to provide a layer 3 boundary at the VPN
gateway so that all traffic that passes through IPsec becomes unicast. The
client purposefully blocks all layer 2 broadcast traffic ( with the
destination layer 2 address being a wildcard address ) to avoid wasting
precious WAN bandwidth on packets that should not be transmitted ( like
netbios broadcast traffic ).
