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 gmoreno@home.esclavosoy.com
then tried to mount from my computer
mount -t smbfs -o username=xxx,password=xxx  /// shares/
but its failed.
