newbie: CIFS setup/ configuration

Hi,
  I just installed Alfresco on my existing Tomcat instance running on port 8080. I am trying to map a drive on the local machine to Alfresco workspace but am not successful. I think by default CIFS is enabled. I looked at online docs/ searched forums - looks like I am not missing any config setting. However, when I try to map a drive to \\<<localmachinename>>\alfresco\users\myspace I can't. In Alfresco web client when I click "View Details" and then "View in CIFS", I see that it is trying to browse to file://user homes/<<myspace>> rather than file://<<localmachinename>>/Alfresco/User Homes/myspace

file-server.properties is given below
filesystem.name=Alfresco

cifs.enabled=true
cifs.localname=${localname}
cifs.domain=
cifs.broadcast=255.255.255.255
cifs.bindto=0.0.0.0
cifs.ipv6=disabled
cifs.hostannounce=true
cifs.urlfile.prefix=http://${localname}:8080/alfresco/

ftp.enabled=true
ftp.ipv6=disabled

nfs.enabled=false

The file-servers.xml is given below
<config evaluator="string-compare" condition="CIFS Server">
      <serverEnable enabled="${cifs.enabled}"/>
     
      <host name="${cifs.localname}A" domain="${cifs.domain}"/>
