of corse it is!
You need a dyndns adress and a router in your office that will forward
dyndns to your linux box.

Example1: on which is running davenport: Configure davenport to fit your needs
On Your XP Client you should install novell s netdrive.
Example2: on a html basis-[..]bclient/smbwebclient-2.9.php.gz?d

Betreff: [Samba] remote samba connection

dear friends,

I have just installed Samba on my Ubuntu machine in the office and could
successfully connect from WinXP within the office network.

As you might have guessed, Vista computers all failed to connect to
Samba. The problem or the question is; would it still be possible for me
to access the shared folder on the Ubuntu machine from my XP laptop from
home ???

Ubuntu pc has static IP however when I try to connect using "start > run
> \\xxx.yyy.zzz.aa\" it failed to connect. Is there a way to connect
from home to office?

Thanks for all your assistance
