Sometimes you need to include exceptions to your local desktop firewall but you only have pseudo localadmin access.

First install the appropriate samba packages.
sudo apt-get install samba smbfs smbclient
Create a new directory for the mountpoint
Mount the share changing cifs to smbfs depending on your config
sudo mount -t cifs //your.shared.windows.path/name /mnt/yourshare -o user=domain/uid%password
Display the new share via the df command
You can now access the new shared mount :
ls -ltra /mnt/yourshare
