I can browse the shares via dolphin in KDE. I can use smbclient and it 
appears to work:
$ smbclient -L //  -U hs
Enter hs's password:

No, there is no selinux running on samba server. The server's log also 
do not show anything abnormal. I get info regarding the smbclient stuff, 
but no info regarding the error 13 that cifs mounting is giving me.
