I hope I can help AKO.

I've been banging my head for weeks trying to figure out a similar issue. And you're going to bang your head too when you figure out how simple it is.

The default firewall you installed when you installed linux is preventing SMB access. On Red Hat you can remove the firewall by going to System Settings --> Security Level and disabling it. This probably not the most secure way of setting things up but it started me off.

Good Luck.
