The code You attached authenticates user on a specific Windows Share 
using Win32 API, so it's worth nothing here :)

What You want to do? Access SMB Shares? If so, how you want to do that.
Did You try just to use URL paths, eg: smb://user:pass@address/share? (I 
didn't try, because now I'm on Windows machine).

Try to look there: 
Maybe You will find something. Ask on Apple Dev Forums, as this is Mac 
OS X releated problem instead of Mono.

Otherwise, you will have to call "mount" command manually to mount SMB 

If You want JUST to authenticate, you will have to use Kerberos or LDAP 
(proper frameworks are available).
