This is certainly possible, but might not be so advisable. It would be more
secure to set-up a VPN connection from your client to your host and then
login that way. Of course, it is possible to access your SMB share through a
windoze machine by the \\SERVER_IP\SHARE_NAME method. It will work, but
seems terribly insecure to me!
