    Are you on the same subnet as the Samba server?

    As I recall, Samba does not work over the public 'net unless you tunnel/vpn to it.

    You can force Samba to use a specific interface with the following:
    Code:
    interfaces = ip.ad.dr.ess/ne.tm.as.k
    For example, one of my machines has
    Code:
    interfaces = 10.1.7.5/255.255.255.0

    3 Rules:
    1) "It doesn't work..." is simply not useful information.
    2) Don't cross post!
    3) If you are asking for help, start by telling us your distro/os and version.
