Buffalo LinkStation Mini LS-WSX1.0TL and Debian Wheezy - CIFS - NFS - FTP - SFTP

I have migrated from Windows 7 to Debian Wheezy (GNOME3) and have been trying to map
the dives I have on my LS-WSX1.0TL but without a success

The drive I map, is road only

Here is what I done:
sudo mkdir /mnt/LS-WSX1.0TL/
sudo mkdir /mnt/LS-WSX1.0TL/web/
sudo chmod 755 /mnt/LS-WSX1.0TL/web/
sudo mount -t cifs // /mnt/LS-WSX1.0TL/web/ -o username=Workgroup/pi,password='raspberry'

Now I am a newbie to Debian so I would appreciate if someone could point me out right direction if I am doing something wrong or it can be done differently.

I have found that my LinkStation Mini LS-WSX1.0TL does NOT support NFS (only for more expensive models) so I am stuck with CIFS, FTP or SFTP (please someone correct me if I am wrong).

Which of those methods is the best to access my NAS and working with the files as I used to be able in Windows (Total Commander)?

CIFS is read only, FTP and SFTP is not as convenient as mapping the drives as local folders
