youre question , is very complex
all i can say is read samba faqs , and for sure there are possibilities 
to make work what you want ( special if you are allowed to change rules 
on the firewall ), but its hard to so give simple answers to network 
questions without more description of you whole net setup.
Perhaps you should look to a local linux community , and a few people 
which will help you.
It doesnt sound like your problem is very hard to fix.
Best Regards
