Samba - General mailing list

I have a samba file server that I created about 20 years ago and in the
time I have done the little updates needes to new server (when I move to a
new server I copy config and adapt if needed).
It only do public file sharing.

Some week ago a client stopped to connect to the share.
Only this client (Win 10 updated to 1703 or 1709).
It can connect to other windows shares or linux samba shares, but not to
this server..
Any attempt end in a messagge like "can't connect to \\GWLAN   check
ortography ..." (translation from Italian original message)

After many attempt, I reformatted and reinstalled the client from scratch.
Now the problem is still present: this client can't connect to the shares.
It connect to every other box in the LAN, but not to this box.
I can't find any useful info in the server's logs, but I noticied a
strange report from the smbstatus command:

The 192.168.67.5 client is another box (a windows server 2016 that I use
as my general porpouse box from many months before the problem appear).
It works fine and don't show any symptoms of problem. Like all other
clients.
The not working client is the 192.168.67.204 (not listed)
That can connet to other samba servers or windows shares.
No DC in this LAN. only workgroup.
If I restart samba the 65534 rows disappear but after few hours I can
noticied them again in smbstatus report.
65534 is so close to the 65536 magic number that I can't think it is a
coincidence :-)
