	I would recommend setting up a VPN tunnel for such access. That
would provide you with much better security. Another thing you could
look at is configuring a FTP server. It might be a little easier to
configure then VPN, but it might also open you up to a few other
security issues.

Subject: [Samba] Windows machines to samba over internet

I have afew machines trying to connect to a samba share running on a
linux computer.
In the local network works fine but I have a few remote users that need
access to that share over the internet.
What can I modify on the samba or on the windows machines to succesfully
connect to the share, without getting timeout errors?
