It uses NetBIOS (rfc1001 and 1002) as an encapsulated protocol. You can
encap it in IPX, NetBEUI *and* TCP/IP. There's no real problem using
Samba/Windows shares over the net, except that browsing is harder to
implement or more-or-less impossible. You may want to install a WINS
server.

It's the same configuration as one would have if you have several subnets.
Reading all docs and having some tests will show you that it simply
works...
