I think, you have to enable the following UDP ports on your firewall to use

- 137/udp
- 138/udp

Also, you have to use WINS or DNS to resolve computer names, if you need to.
You don't have to enable any other ports to use WINS. DNS runs on ports
53/tcp and 53/udp. Enable these ports on your firewall, and try to connect
to your share from the remote machine.

This worked for me through a VPN connection, I hope it will work for you,
