you better should study basics of networking and firewalling.
only an idiot would open smb 135up tp 139 to the web.
Cause means your machine would be open to anybody *lol.
After all you have to descripe what network setup do you have....firewall
rules etc at home and in work.
Normally you would do this stuff via tunneling (pptp , cipe , freeswan )
but you can also setup an apache with kind of smb perl scriptsto browse the
The easiest way is to connect to your samba via ssh portforwarded to your
firewall and use 
winscp ( if you want use win ).
But sorry study more facts and post your needs with facts.
