    Is there a method to setup UNC browsing over the internet (with log on security obviously).

    So for example I may substitute
    Local: \\SERVER\Stuff
    with
    Remote: \\<Public IP>\Stuff

    I don't want to use FTP with folder browsing as when you open a file it downloads a copy to your TEMP folder. I want to actually edit files on the server and keep them locked out when in use.

    It sounds kind of ridiculous but is it possible?

    Technically, you could do that. You don't want to do that.

    I think it's 135-1439 and 445 both TCP and UDP.

    135 and 1439, not range 135-1439... right?

    135/TCP,UDP DCE endpoint resolution Official
    135/TCP,UDP Microsoft EPMAP (End Point Mapper), also known as DCE/RPC Locator service[7], used to remotely manage services including DHCP server, DNS server and WINS. Also used by DCOM

    445/TCP Microsoft-DS Active Directory, Windows shares Official
    445/UDP Microsoft-DS SMB file sharing


    1439 is not listed, but close to MS SQL

    sorry fat fingers ... 135-139.

    I'm pretty sure anyways, we have a dual firewall setup at work and can check there but I think that's it.

    I've tried this on both XP and Server 2008 with firewall disabled as well as firewall enabled with the exceptions. Ports are forwarded correctly and it's still not working. Firewall / port forwarding / etc in both TCP and UDP. Even turned off SP1 firewall on my router. Still not working.

    cool site, but likely will report incorrectly if you are behind a router with a firewall turned on
