Connecting with Samba Share via SSH Tunnel


Hi Folks,
I am trying to connect to a Samba Share on my Linux machine through a firewall. I believe that all I need to do is to create a tunnel with putty by forwarding port 139. What I am confused about is...What is the destination IP address? I have tried the samba server, local machine, and loopback but nothing seems to work.


What am I missing? I have searched the boards and web but I believe I am doing what is perscribed.

Has anyone been able to connect a windows machine to a linux samba share using a ssh tunnel with Putty? if so I would really like to hear what you did.


Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance
