    Accessing firewalled samba server

    Hi guys and gals,

    What's the best way to access my firewalled samba server. I've tried using a ssh tunnel but that hasnt worked it fails everytime I try to connect to it.

    What I did is I ssh into the samba server and then ran

    ssh -L8080:localhost:139
    then tried to mount from my computer
    mount -t smbfs -o username=xxx,password=xxx  /// shares/
    but its failed.

    If you are using `iptables`, you can open the ports that Samba uses and restrict access to them using conditions such as network address/mask, MAC address, and etc.
