Way too little information here.

What is the server(s) OS?

Firewalls at both ends?

VPN Set up?

Generally speaking, firewalls are configured to block incoming connections. The firewall's settings would have to be configured to allow incoming connections to reach a specific server inside the firewall.

To do what you want, you would need to allow all the MS networking stuff in (Ports 135,137,139, maybe 53). This is a VERY BAD IDEA; it will alow many viruses, trojans and worms past your firewall, which was the reason for installing it in the first place.

What you want is much better done with a VPN
