Connection timeout errors while accessing files through samba from linux to windows

Dear All,
I have installed samba on RHEL linux 6.2 system and trying to access windows folder through samba server from this machine. I have used this command to mount windows folder. I have replaced actual values with dummy values.

mount -t cifs //x.x.x.x/winfolder /linux/folder/ -o username=user,password=password,domain=DOM

I receive this error when I run above command.

mount error(110): Connection timed out
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)

I can see the Samba server is installed correctly I can see smb service and inetxtd service running.

I think it could be some firewall issue. Please let me know what could be causing this.

Thanks a lot for your help
