Creating a SSL connection from smb clients to a smb server

Hello everyone,

I asked this question in another forum and was told that since in and of itself, it's not a Linux question that I should post it here. . . .

I'm running a SMB server that my Windows users connect to and the server may be going off site soon. What I would like to know is is whether or not I could create a SSL session between clients and a smb server NOT using a VPN but rather a cable connection. I would like this to be transparent to the end user.

My concern is security for clients downloading/uploading data from their personal documents folders and such. I do not want some "eyes" sniffing the data going back and forth so I am curious if anyone has ever heard of this and how it would be possible to do it? Thanks in advance to all that reply.
