mount /mnt/share
hmm, I'm not quite sure, but I think, the problem is the IP address! "" is "localhost" and can't be used in a network. You have to use the hostname or the IP address assigned to your NIC instead.

i was going to write some instructions, but its probably just as well to point to a how-to:

it looks like it should help. on the down side, i've been trying to do essentially the same thing and have a Server: permission denied problem.

there appears to be a lot of good info in these forums. good luck.
