create a user on your box
give that user permission to view a shared resource in the smb.conf
the person on the internet will have to add you machine IP and a name to
their HOSTS file may even have to login in to your domain.

could be tricky but it can work.

I connect to my ISP and then login to my domain which is a RH 6.0
server, I have full access to my office this way.

I'm not a big advocate of sharing info over the internet.  SMB can be a
big hole.
