I have a Windows 7 computer that I use to acquire data and I want to be able to map it's C drive (or a folder in C and it's subfolders) in another Windows PC (using windows 8 now) to access it in windows explorer, over the internet (not LAN).
I'm trying to tunnel a ssh connection and followed the instructions on these sites: http://www.nikhef.nl/~janjust/CifsOverSSH/Win8Loopback.html http://www.leedberg.com/2005/03/secure-windows-file-sharing-over.html
First I tried to install freeSSHd but when I used puTTy to connect, it always returned "connection rejected". When I found the second link above, I installed Cygwin instead in the host and now I can use puTTy to ssh to it. I can even use WinSCP and get the files (in LAN).
I just need help to give the "last" step. I tried the instructions in the first link but when I try to access \10.255.255.1, I get the same problem as before, it says "connection rejected". Some other pages said to tunnel the port 139 also, but i'm not familiar with these configurations and what could be the problem. I think the problem is in the server Computer and not in the client.
I'm always missing some small little details, so every little tip may solve my problem,
