This works good. I'm doing this right now.

Does your new server have an entry in DNS? It appears not to.
I'm serving Samba shares out over the InterNet (see http://samba.mhsc.com
), as well as time, but some infra-structure has to be provided. Important
here is that the \\computername can not be a CNAME. It has to be a real,
RARP-able, DNS entry.
I was able to get this to work even across three domains and two firewalls,
let alone piddley little sub-net boundaries. Name browsing, of course,
