If for some reason you need to access a Samba share outside of the
network, it is possible to access it through ssh and mount the share
on your local computer.
Using the ssh command as root is required because you will bind local
port 139 which is reserved for root:
# ssh -L 139:127.0.0.1:139 user@remote-server -N
Then you can mount the share as usual but using `localhost` instead of
`remote-server`.
Example of a mount element for `usmb`
127.0.0.1
public
/mnt/share
allow_other,uid=1000
