Well, it *shouldn't* be!  There were days when you could indeed run
SMB over TCP/IP across the Internet, but even Comcast filters 138/139
on business connections these days.

I've mounted my linux filesystems via SSHFS on a Windows Machine
before.  It worked OK, it was pretty slow due to the encryption
overhead.  And I toss DVD sized ISOs around the network all the time,
it wasn't fast enough for my needs.
