I think the ports in question will be
137-139 and 445
Or even 139 and 445 should be sufficient. But I would make sure the
firewall rules only allow access on those ports for the samba server IP's.
Browsing over the internet seems a little unreliable. Remote users may
want to know the name/ip of the samba machine and the specific shares.
Actually, I think accessing samba shares over the internet will have
poor performance- I don't think "windows file sharing" was designed
with "slow" Internet/WAN connections in mind.
