I encountered the same problem a few weeks ago. Unfortunately I don't
have the correct command in bash_history anymore. Can you try:

 sudo mount -t cifs -o user=<username>,password=<password>
//<ipaddress>/Share ~/mnt/Share
 sudo mount -t cifs -o user=guest //<ipaddress>r/Share ~/mnt/Share

Which message do you get in the Samba logs? You can take a look at the
samba wiki as well:
