Trying to mount a windows share on a ubuntu server 14.04 from command line

Can someone help with the correct syntax for a shell command to mount a whare on a windows machine from a Ubuntu box please.
Trying with the following and cant get a combination that works.

mount -t cifs '\\192.168.21.5\Aquira' /mnt/share -o user=,password=,sec=lanman,rw

The response I get is:
mount error(5): Input/output error
Refer to the mount.cifs(8) manual page (e.g. man mount.cifs)

but its different from IO error.
Try to hardcode user and passwort to the mount-command parameters.

like this:

mount -t cifs '\\server\share' /mnt -o user=username,password=passwordofuser,sec=ntlm
