NetSUS Cannot connect to SMB share

I have set up NetSUS running on Ubuntu 14.04.5 LTS, but I cannot figure out why I am not able to connect to its SMB share to upload the Netboot image.

I have verified that the firewall on the server is off.
I have double checked the user account.
I have double checked folder permissions are set correctly.

It doesn't even look like its trying to authenticate with the smbuser. But the smb logs are not showing anything and I am stumped.

Config file shows:

[NetBoot] comment = NetBoot path = /srv/NetBoot/NetBootSP0 valid users = smbuser write list = smbuser create mask = 0755 browseable = No

Folder Permissions:

drwxr-xr-x 2 smbuser root 4096 Oct 7 2016 NetBootSP0

I'm having a similar issue. It throws this error because it appends some other IP address to the actual IP address:

This server has a FQDN in our DNS servers, and it has a reservation in our DHCP server so it always gets the same address. I don't know what's going on with it, but it's annoying AF.
