[Samba] Samba and VFP pgm over Terminal Server - access rights?

I have a program that we need to use at my office. It is written in Visual
FoxPro and thus must run on a Win machine [there is no replacement
available at this time that is Linux native]. I need to access it from a
remote site over a fairly slow connection but the traffic volume will be
very low. I have placed the dbfs on a samba share.
When I am at the console from the machine offering Terminal Server I can
access and run the program without any problem. When I am remote I can
access and run the program only if I move the dbfs back onto the machine
offering Terminal Server. [access rights problem?]
From the remote sight I can map the samba share to the local drive so the
user does have access rights. However, the way the program is written it
is impractical to do this in production as it is not written as a thin
When installing Terminal Services a user titles "TsInternetUser" was added
and a group named "Terminal Service Users" was added to the Win2K machine
hosting Term. Services. Do I need to add this as a user (TsInternetUser)
to the samba users list. If so what Password would I use? The login user
or a special pwd for TsInternetUser?
Any help and enlightenment appreciated.
