I guess a better question would have been:  what does your 'hosts allow'
entry look like?  Any of the following should work: 

hosts allow = 199.233.163.
hosts allow =
hosts allow = .csol.com

On the other hand, the following would probably fail silently (unless you
had your debug level set high enough):

hosts allow =

You might check the result of the following:

   testparm gates.csol.com

This tests whether a given host-name/address is allowed or denied by your
smb.conf file.  If it comes back saying denied, then there's a problem
with your 'hosts allow' entry. 

If it comes back saying allowed, then the only thing I can suggest is
shutting down samba, restarting it, then trying to repeat your steps to
see if you are still getting the 'Connection denied' log message.
