Let me rephrase it altogether:
I have LAN with Linux doing IP_Masquerading for the Lan. The LAN has also
an NT and a bunch of win95 boxes.
Now someone with a win95 in another city wants to "connect to the LAN" --
I.e. it wants to see / cooperate with the NT & win95 boxes on the LAN. So
it dials up to the Internet in that city. The linux box (with IP_Masquerading )
also dials up to a local ISP.
I understand that with appropriate setup, the remote-city win95 could be
made to see the Linux box's samba services over the Internet.
But can the remote-city win95 box "see" and cooperate (file / printer
sharing) with the NT & win95 boxes on the LAN ?
