CIFS with Ubuntu 7.10

Hello,

Should it be possible to connect to Alfresco CIFS via the internet, or does CIFS work only on a LAN?

I've installed Alfresco community 2.1 on Ubuntu 7.10 and verified that it is running on the server.

But, I'm not clear how to connect to that machine from a Windows XP box via the internet.  When I try to map the drive, I've tried:

\\xxx.yyy.zzz.aaa:1139\alfresco
\\xxx.yyy.zzz.aaa\alfresco

and some other combinations, but these don't work.

Thanks!

smbclient -U admin \\\\127.0.0.1\\alfresco admin
