Well, my setup is:

Win95----PPTP---InterJet----Debian (what is Linux 7? You mean RedHat 7?)

I can virtual network just fine from my Win95 box at home, then telnet
to my Debian Linux box, or whatever else I want to do.

But I don't have much need to do Samba stuff per se from there.  What
*exactly* are you trying to do?  Then maybe I can try it out.
