Samba share keeps prompting for password

I have a Samba share that is setup correctly, I think, on RHEL AS 3.
testparm shows positive results. I can access the share when I'm on the network at work through Windows XP. However, when I access the drive from home, it seems to connect, but continues to prompt me for a password.
At work, I can use the Map Network Drive and use a different user to login just fine.
When I'm at home, it just continues to prompt me for a password.
I've tried using SSH tunneling but the same problem exists. I don't think it's iptables since it works at work and turning it off doesn't solve the problem.
To be honest, I've tried so many things, I can't remember them all. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I have allowed the network of the DSL connection I'm on. Thanks.

Please post results of testparm, ifconfig, and the contents of your smb.conf file.
