netbios shares beyond a router or switch
Is it possible to use the netbios shares beyond a router or a switch?
i know that netbios shouldn't be, but maybe the shares are...
suppose i use : "net use x: \\192.168.2.6\C$ /User:Box\administrator password"
this will work on a network without any routers, but is it possible, maybe a modified command, to use to go beyond a router or switch.
i've googled for this a long time now, but haven't found a solution yet, still i think it must be possible.

Well, right now one thing that prevents it is the use of private addressing. You'd need to setup some forward rules in the router/switch. AFAIK, if there is a valid IP, there would be no reason why you cannot access a share.

sorry for my late reaction, haven't got internet at home yet
but what you mean, is that suppose the adress of my computer is 188.8.131.52, i could use a share to my computer from another computer even if my computer is not in the same network?
e.a.: net use x: \\184.108.40.206\c$ /user:box\administrator password
i've tried this before, even with a system not behind a firewall, but with the shares on, but it doesn't seem to work....
