Yes, that is correct. 

This is because A and B and on a Gigabit network. B is also in an
100Mbs Network with a lot other machines. Since some people (sometimes) need data from A I need this

I did, the problem is that on server X i  mount:
mount B:/TERABYTE local_dir
I get
mount: B:/TERABYTE failed, reason given by server: Permission denied

On B's fstab I have:
//A/terabyte  /TERABYTE     smbfs   dmask=0777,fmask=0666,username=genuser,password=genuser 1 1
On B's exports I have:
/TERABYTE *(rw,sync)

Any ideas?
