The problem here is that *he* is the user that wants to use smb 
bare-assed over the internet.  I doubt this would be that much of an 
issue if it were a user, since a respected sysadmin can usually tell 
someone how they should be using a network resource, unless the user is 
braindead upper management unfortunately.  We're into the "I'd really 
like to do it this way for no apparent gain" zone on this one.

Lets all just let this one die.  No poster has touched the issue he's 
having, and from the people that have posted it doesn't look like anyone 
is going to be attempting to help, not because no one knows, but because 
it's been deemed a WTF issue.  If Mr. Blank gets this one to work he'll 
have one more "I did a cool thing one day" feather in his cap when he 
goes client scouting.
