Samba via PPP0 device

I have 2 network devices eth1 and ppp0. eth1 is my internal NIC for my LAN, and ppp0 is SBC PPPoE DSL My router and firewall works wonderfully, and I can access the net and the LAN. However, I cannot mount a remove SAMBA share over ppp0, it seems to be trying to mount over eth1 which is the internal NIC. If I run the following command this is the output I receive.

smbmount // /mentor -o username=tnine,password=*******
timeout connecting to
Error connecting to (Operation already in progress)
8791: Connection to failed
SMB connection failed

Does anyone know why this is not working? It is not a firewall issue since I can mount the drive from one of my Windows clients. I'm using shorewall, and I have the same ports open from fw to net as I do loc to net.
