I don't know, but I don't think its a good idea... many times ISP's will
even block such traffic...

what I would do is tunnel over SSH... this would make it secure, give you
the chance to use compression, cut though a firewall, and still be sharp
enough to thinly slice a tomato...

you'll have to either set up a box that keeps the tunnel alive or kill the
server service on your box, because you'll be connecting to the shares on if you make the tunnel on your box...


I am too tired to try it now, and definetly not awake enough to explain
