OpenMediaVault Mount Problems

Good day all. Sorry if this is posted in the wrong section, but this made sense to me.

Here's my problem. I have OpenMediaVault up & running. I can connect to it using my Linux (Ubuntu 12.04) machine & my wifes Windows 7 machine. I want to mount the shared folder (named Joker) using fstab since my music programs have problems pointing to the NAS. I can't seem to figure out the correct command to use that won't cause an error.

Penguin is my Linux machine & blipside is the username

sudo mount -t cifs // /media/Joker -o username=penguin/blipside,password=xxx
mount error(13): Permission denied
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)

sudo mount -t cifs //openmediavault/joker/ /media/Joker -o username=workgroup/blipside,password=xxx
mount error: could not resolve address for openmediavault: Unknown error

I have tried using smbfs also with no luck. I have also tried it with just my user name. I can access the drives by going through Browse Network.

Thank you for any help you can provide

can you ssh into it ? if so then sshfs (with keys) should work.

Thanks for the idea. I'll have to try it when I get everything set up again. My basement flooded on Monday (30 July 2012 for those just finding this thread). It may be a few weeks since my systems where all down there. Luckily none of my stuff got wet.
