Secure samba through firewall

Hi I'm pretty sure this has been up before but my searches didn't give me much help so...

I want to be able to connect to my samba server at work. I'm in control of the firewall at my
department but the main firewall for the whole network has netbios ports blocked.

How can I connect to it securely.
Running stunnel on both ends I suspect would solve the problem. But I don't know how to do it.
Could anyone please enlighten me?
If several solutions are available please give me hints on the best setup as this should hopefully be used
by a couple of hundred users..

I have samba-2.2.4-3 installed from rpm's running on rh7.3

Could stunnel be a good substitute for samba-ssl?
