Data Sharing a Unix Drive Over The Internet ... but

I don't know if this can be done, otherwise, my project will come to
a screeching halt.

I have a SCO 5.0.5 machine connected to the internet with a static
IP address.

I need to be able to share a drive : /shareddrive
I need to map to it from a windows machine:

hence, what i'd like to do:

(in windows)

NET USE X: \\IP_ADDRESS\shareddrive

does anyone know what I need to do on the Unix side? should
i be running apache or can i mount the drive somehow with web
sharing? I've tried nfs, no go.

Help!

Oh!! - one more thing!

The windows machine is not in the local network, so i
need to be able to use that map command from the
internet.

Thank you in advance!

Samba, as I recall, only works on LANs, because the protocol is not routable across the Internet. I have never been able to get Samba to work across the Internet. Sure wish it would!!!

In other words, I do not know, off hand, how to mount a disk across the Internet between a Windows server and a UNIX server, sorry. If you find an answer, let me know because I would like to mount a remote Linux filesystem across the Internet on my XP workstation.

Well, I tried this:

I mounted the drive I needed on the Unix server:

mount -f NFS 10.0.0.10:/shared /u/unixshared

It mounts to my Windows machine.

Now, if I try to introduce a webshare on that folder
on the Windows machine, it doesnt allow me to do
so.

I guess, this project is scrapped. Don't think my
boss is going to like this very much.

Thanks Neo
