Sounds like a job for 'smbmount'. Try running /usr/bin/smbmount, it
will give you all the options you need to make it work (asuming you
have SAMBA installed). Basically what it will do is mount the NT share
directory on your Linux box (so you need to have a directory on your
Linux system..like say /nt_share. And then once it is mounted as that
directory you can access it from the Internet. I have only used this
tool a few times, so i really can't give you a walkthrough of the
process, but if you type the command and read thru the instructions
(Although cryptic) you will eventually get it. You may also find the
SMB 'How To' helpful - http://www.linuxdoc.org/HOWTO/SMB-HOWTO.html.
