Could you post the remove server configuration (/etc/samba/smb.conf)?

You can run the following commands from a terminal:

To test:

 1. install the samba-client package
 2. try to connect to the remote system from the command line: 

    smbclient //remote_system/share_name

If the share requires a specific username/password, try using the "-U"
parameter (for example, use "-U ntdomain\\user").
