          First u make it sure that you are accessing it with correct alias share name.And you try this with cmd line from any linux machine

#smbclient -L //<server-ip> -N
Above cmd will display the share name (alias name).
#smbclient //<server-ip>/<sharename> -U <username>

If you are not able to access then verify the path of your samba share in configuration .
