mapping drives to windows

I have a workspace on a QNX6 machine, which I can only access on our wireless internet if I first telnet into a Linux server and then telnet from there to the QNX machine.

I can map directly to the QNX machine from my wired internet but not from wireless.

So, is it possible to map through that Linux server to the QNX machine?

Sort of like a double mapping, or something like that...

I'm not sure if I understand your situation fully.
As I read it, I think you are at home on a windows computer and you want to connect a QNX6 machine at work. You can't connect to it directly, so you go through a linux server.

I can think of 2 solutions for this off the top of my head, but they both involve changes on the linux server. I'm not sure if you can change anything on there, but here they are anyway:

1) A bridging firewall setup on the linux server. You have to be very careful with this on an external IP, because you don't want the whole internet to have access to your servers.
2) Install a VPN

Neither solution is easy to implement though...
You could probably solve this with some kind of network tunnel too, but I wouldn't know the specifics of such.
