Samba on Linux, w4w, ppp based remote w4w services, and ppp on Linux

Can the Windows For Workgroups optional 'remote network' (dialout/dialin)
services, which  appearently claim to use smb protocol routed on a ppp
link, connect to a ppp disciplined serial port on a Linux machine and talk
to Samba in successfully in this manner?

I already have Samba and use it locally (highly recommended if you must
have windows preset on your network), but I would like to also dial-in
with my portable.


1. Thanks! It works Linux+Win95+W4W+LILO.

It also overwrites MBR every time you reinstall it (and you will
have to reinstall it) so keep linux bootdisk handy.

Not by a long shot.  A number of wfw/win95 apps don't work properly
in NT, for one thing.
