I don't do network shares (of either type) here, but see the "Kaffeine 
and playing files from off the local network" thread, original post by 
John Woodhouse, posted back on Fri, 20 May 2011 15:50:59 -0700 (PDT).  
(KDE should have an archive if you need it, or for sure does, 
as I use its news server to follow the list tho it has a web version too.)

The gist is that kde's network share support is either buggy or 
incomplete as of 4.6, with some support but various specific problems.  
As I said I don't do network shares here, so won't attempt more detail of 
something I don't know about.  But that thread's the closest related 
discussion I've seen here recently.
