Re: SMB over public network

There is a 'host' file on the pc running Win9x. That is where you have to enter your info so that you can attach to a remote network.

However, I have had customers who have tried that and would loose their network connection. I believe its a weakness in the MS client. Same connection with Novell client fixed the problem. There may be 'retry' options under MS that I never found.

You may want to try NFS. I was told that NFS was available for Windows but never looked.

If you do get this to work reliably, I'd like to hear from you.
