ISP blocking smb port
My ISP is blocking port 138,139 and 445.
How can i get around this?
Somekind of tunnel?
Any ideas?
best regard stefan

FYI SMB is unsecure and ISPs that block these ports are doing a good thing to protect their customers. You can tunnel samba over ssh or you can use a Virtual Private Network (VPN) like poptop or openvpn. If just copying files you can use scp or if windows, WinSCP.
