try this instead...
smbclient -M <YOUR NETBIOS NAME FOR THE COMPUTER (it is the name of the 
computer to which you want to send the msg to.)>

What is happening is there is a query going on looking for a computer 
named Do you have a computer named that? Well, you don't 
according to SMB.

Also, did you compile in the SMB stuffs in to snort? You also need to 
create a file that has the names of the systems you want to send the 
messages to, that's according to the docs. But I couldn't get it to work 
either. But if you do get it working, then there is hope. Hope to hear 
about favorable results regarding SMB alerts and snort.
