Connect to Samba Server remotely


I have a Samba server at my house. It is also running SSH.

How do I map to the Samba server or SSH using a Windows XP native "MAP NETWORK DRIVE" tool? Not WinSCP.

If you are remote from home pc, you need to setup samba as a wins server, then you can setup an ssh tunnel with putty, then you should be able to browse remotely.
However, it's a lot easier to use the built-in PPTP VPN and poptop on the samba server. This sets up the networking and the wins server redirects automagically when you start the connection.
