thank you everyone. Eventually I had time to sit down and look at this issue.

It was easier than ever.

At first mdns-scan was not picking anything up of course. Then I saw
in gnome that it was trying to connect to network (wired) but failed.

It was easy as creating a new wired network profile. From the
top-right, click on the batteries. Or under "wired settings".
Then add a new network profile
   Identity: Lacie Network
   MTU: automatic
   IPv4: Link-local only
   IPv6: Link-local only

As soon as connected to such network the mdns-scan managed to pick the
drive address, nautilus automatically showed the drive on which I was
able to simply click and put in the driver's user/pass to connect to
the share.

A minor thing, non blocking is that it mount the driver under a quite
deep place that I'd like to change to something more meaningful. For
example in this round of mounting is:
Anyone with hints on this already would be appreciated. Otherwise I
will give some research and in case I'll manage in my backup scripts.
