The samba share path is in format //machine/share_name so you should use 
a share's name, not a folder name. You can see the share names with 
following command:

smbclient -L machine_name

or if you need username to access that machine use

smbclient -U the_username -L machine_name

You may need to use that username with mount command too. I don't 
remember if it's possible to use plain mount then or should one just 
use smbmount in that case.

See "man smbmount" for more help.
