I would try this first:

smbclient -U $USER -L $HOST

with $USER your username on the remote system $HOST. (You will be
prompted for the password if the remote host requires one.) This command
should list all shares (printers, folders) that $USER can access on
$HOST. It would be interesting to see if that works, if you get an error
message or if the command times out. Make sure to try both using the
hostname and using the IP address for $HOST.
