Configuring CIFS

Hi,

I have alfresco-5.0.d Community Version installed on a virtual machine (Ubuntu 14.04.2 LTS (64 bit)) of our server. Now I want to configure CIFS to access the Alfresco content like an Explorer Drive from my Window 8.1 PC.
I added in alfresco-5.0.d/tomcat/shared/classes/alfresco-global.properties the lines:
cifs.enabled=true
cifs.serverName=Alfresco
cifs.hostannounce=true

restarted the alfresco server and tried to a map network drive in my windows explorer.
Alfresco Installation directory on the ubuntu-VM is: \home\ota\alfresco-5.0.d
So can I just connect Alfresco as follows:
e.g. network drive: Z:
Folder:
\\<IP-Adress Ubuntu-VM>\\home\ota\alfresco-5.0.d


But it doesn`t work (message: Windows cannot access
\\<IP-Adress Ubuntu-VM>\\home\ota\alfresco-5.0.d
)
Is there anything wrong or missing in my configuration?
Has out Firewall to open some port and which ones?

Thanks for any help!
