KACE Replication share on Mac Pro?

I'm attempting to set up a KACE replication share on a new Mac Pro in one of our remote offices, but have so far been unsuccessful. The error I've been getting each time I configure it has been:
The replication agent is unable to write to the share. Check the user/password.

I've selected the Mac Pro as the Device. 

For both the destination share and download share path, I've provided it with: 
\\\kace (IP is actually something different, but you get the idea)

For the destination share and download share user, I've tried using read & read/write users that I've created, as well as a basic administrator, but nothing works. No domain, because these are accounts local to the Pro.

Has anyone successfully set up a replication share on a Mac Pro? Your help would be greatly appreciated!

Have never done one on a mac and there is no help I can find on setting one up on a Mac OS X. 

If I had to do this with the lack of help on how to do this.  I set up a samba (smb) share on the mac and use a user that has rights to that share only.  the k1000 will act just like it is windows server then to it then.

If you chose the Mac as replicator as well try to use in the destination share field a local path (example: /Users/Marco/myReplicaFolder)
You will not need to specify a username and password in that case.
In the Download share patch you will need to use the UNC path (example: \\mymac\myshare)
Should work fine :-)
