It should work as described - I do this at home, and I have done it for years.

The only thing you didn't mention, is dismounting from the system where you first mounted it.  You *did* dismount it, didn't you?  As soon as it's dismounted, it should be mountable again, either by the same computer, or by a different computer on the network.  And again, I'm speaking from experience on this.
