MessageDrew (who posted a few days ago) is my partner in crime in a
setup not dissimilar to this.  If I shout loudly enough he might hear me
and chip in with some info on how we accomplished a successful
ipsec/samba/nat combination for the Windows machines on our networks.
This permits SMB share browsing across the different workgroups hosted
on servers that are quite some distance apart.

As Tom said, you really need to do this using a VPN.  Any other way is
jolly insecure and will definitely lead you to the dark side (as well as
pollute your cable segment with hugely annoying NETBIOS traffic).

Drew!  Are you there?!

I am on a LAN and my IP is obtained via DHCP, which my linux box then
routes to my own little lan.  Is there a way for Netbois connections to
get trough the firewall and have access to all the PC's on my little lan
connection? Or can i just route port 139 to the desired ip on my own
