smbfs does not support many things that are needed on a 'unix'
filesystem.  This includes sockets.  Likewise, the server must have unix
extensions turned on.  I think there is work in both smbfs but
particularly the CIFS VFS to allow this to work better, but really
between unix hosts, NFS (or derivatives such as SFS) provides better
