Samba over PPP

>From my understanding of the way PPP and Samba work, without special
configuration, SMB broadcasts will not be forwarded over a PPP connection.
What has to be set up on the Samba server and Samba/Windows clients in
order for this to work?  Will a simple LMHOSTS file on the client be
sufficient or do I need to direct the Samba server to send packets
directly to the remote PPP client?

Thanks in advance,
