due to misuse and security concerns nearly all ISPs (Internet Service Providers)
block all ports used by the SMB/CIFS protocol.
To communicate the SMB protocol across the internet one can tunnel it e.g. by
using openVPN (or other tunneling mechs):
Or you use "rsync" for syncing, which can be used directly across the internet (e.g. via ssh).
Sample GUI for rsync: http://dalalven.dtdns.net/linux/gadmintools-webpage/
