This isn't about smbmount at all. You have a problem with your samba
config and it's not allowing access. Check the logs, look at the docs ...
DIAGNOSTICS ... encrypted passwords ... smbpasswd file ...

It might be a better solution to set up a VPN or something, but others
have done like this before.
Note: If the networks are all behind the same firewall, and you can ping
the remote IP, then you should be able to connect directly (even if you
can't browse it):
net use z: //192.168.1.123//share
