SHOREWALL - Standard two-interface loses shares in SMB4K

I set up the Shorewall filrewall and used the two-interface option given on the site.
However, although I have set Samba up to do WINS as instructed I cannot see the XP shares in SMB4K or access them via smbclient. In fact SMB4K wont allow me to expand the WORKGROUP giving an error "Connect to unknown failed"
Can anyone help please?

I should imagine it has something to do with the fact that I cannot see the other 3 XP machines on the 192.168.1.x subnet.

Perhaps I should mention that my Linux box is connected to 1 port of the 4 port D-Link D504T router - eth1 192.168.1.x DHCP and I have an XP box off my Linux machine using STATIC IP of eth0 my 2nd NIC to of XP box also using STATIC IP [I will try DHCP on this one day].

This is slightly different to the standard shorewall 2-interface scene.
The other 3 people don't want my Linux firewall so thats the reason for this deviation.

What am I not understanding?

Ad yes I did swap the eth0 and eth1 in the /shorewall/interfaces file.

My /shorewall/masq file has
eth1 eth0

And yes I did copy the DropSMB/RejectSMB files to /etc/shorewall.

IN FACT on the local XP machine I can see the other boxes just I can't access them.
