I would recommend using a seperate VPN product, and run samba over that
connection, rather than assuming that adding SSL maks samba suitable for
a non-LAN environment. Unfortunetly this protocol has too many holes in
it for serious deployment like this. :-(.
Personally, I use a PPP over SSH VPN, using pppd's 'pty <script>' option
to forward it over a key-authorized SSH connection to the far end, where
I again run 'pppd'.
Hope this helps,
