out of curiousity, has anyone been able to use stunnel as a cheap vpn
for smb/cifs windows networks?

We have a stupid firewall policy that blocks ALL port 139 traffic.
Yes, thats good most of the time since microsoft rpc's are notoriously
insecure.  It does cause a problem when we have other units at other
universities with different firewall policies however, so I was hoping
to go around the different bureacracies and tunnel it myself.

just curious.
