Samba does not work well over a WAN and has lots of security issues. For moving across files WANS, suggest you consider SSH. That is what we do. In fact, we used to use SAMBA locally, but often just find SSH is just as easy (locally). Certainly, SSH is preferrable across a WAN.

masktest - Find differences in wildcard matching between Samba's implementation and that of a remote server. SYNOPSIS
masktest {//server/share} [-U user%pass] [-d debuglevel] [-W workgroup] [-n numloops] [-s seed] [-a] [-E] [-M max protocol] [-f filechars] [-m maskchars] [-v] DESCRIPTION
masktest is a utility for detecting differences in behaviour between Samba's own implementation and that of a remote server. It will run generate random filenames/masks and check if these match the same files they do on the remote file as they do on the local server. It will display any differences it finds. This utility is used by the Samba team to find differences in behaviour between Samba and Windows servers. OPTIONS
-U user%pass Specify the user and password to use when logging on on the shares. This parameter can be specified twice (once for the first server, once for the second). -s seed Seed the random number generator with the specified value. -n numops Set the number of operations to perform. -a Print the operations that are performed. -M max_protocol Maximum protocol to use. -f Specify characters that can be used when generating file names. Default: abcdefghijklm. -E Abort when difference in behaviour is found. -m maskchars Specify characters used for wildcards. -v Be verbose VERSION
This man page is correct for version 4.0 of the Samba suite. SEE ALSO
This utility is part of the Samba[1] suite, which is developed by the global Samba Team[2]. masktest was written by Andrew Tridgell. This manpage was written by Jelmer Vernooij. NOTES
