Running SMB at a different port number

Hi Folks,
	I have successfully built a Samba server to run at a different
port number than 139. Does anybody know how one might connect to such 
a server from Windows (NT, 95, or 98 - it doesnt matter). I can connect
properly using smbclient -p but I've no idea whether there is form of
"URL" that you can put into Windows to get it to connect to shares or
printers on a different port?

(There is a good reason why I cant run at 139!!)

Regards and Thanks in advance...
