Q: Can I access my data / files remotely, over the Internet, particularly my CIFS/SMB (SAMBA) shares?
A: Yes, there are quite a few different ways to do this. You will have to configure secure access to your private network from the Internet, this is beyond the scope of this Wiki and the XigmaNAS forum. Beyond that, many of the methods and client software you can use are detailed in the XigmaNAS Setup and User Guide, specifically in Section 2.6-Using Services. There is no one best way and everyone has their own preferences on what to use an how to set it up. Some people use Hamachi and similar products, others do Samba over SSH. For some other different/easy/free/good suggestions and ideas, please read read SMB/CIFS via internet.
