If for some reason you need to access a Samba share outside of the network, it is possible to access it through ssh and mount the share on your local computer.
Using the ssh command as root is required because you will bind local port 139 which is reserved for root:
# ssh -L 139:127.0.0.1:139 user@remote-server -N
Then you can mount the share as usual but using
localhost instead of
Example of a mount element for
<mount id="public" credentials="me"> <server>127.0.0.1</server> <!--server>192.168.12.4</server--> <share>public</share> <mountpoint>/mnt/share</mountpoint> <options>allow_other,uid=1000</options> </mount>
As a reminder,
<!--tag>foobar</tag--> is a XML comment.
