Accessing a Samba server over the Internet

I want to connect to Samba volumes on a SCO Open Server 5 over the Internet
from my NT 4 workstation. My workstation is in a local domain and gets a
dynamic IP address when it connects to my ISP; the Internet hostname is also
dynamic and can't be predicted.
I can determine my ISP's B class subnet which I have put into the smb.conf
file in the 'hosts allow' entry.
However, connections to Samba shares fail with a 'bad handle' message. I've
tried connecting as <username> and <domain>/<username>, both fail but the
latter seems to work best with the 'bad handle' response rather than a
'could not find it at all' message.
I do have the clear text password registry patch so what else ?
Suggestions and comment are welcome,
