When I use smbclient to access an IOMEGA NAS server, smbclient tries

Next, smbclient goes on to contact it on port 139, and all works great
right away.

Can I direct smbclient to not use 445?  Anyone have an idea why
smbclient is getting stuck in this tar pit for five minutes?

From 'man smbclient':

 -p port
        This  number  is  the TCP port number that will be used when making 
connections to
        the server. The standard (well-known) TCP port number for an SMB/CIFS server is
        139, which is the default.
