How to access SMB share from windows over the internet with specific port number RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I have a SMB server running on windows port 445. When I want to connect to this server on the local network, everything works fine. I'm getting into trouble when I want to connect to my SMB server over the internet specially through windows. In router I forwarded a port 4455 to my SMB server ip with internal port 445.

    I have managed to access that smb server through Android with port 4455 over the internet. How to do the same thing through windows with port 4455. 

    I try to connect:

    1. go to My computer

    2. Click Map network drive

    3. Enter xx.xx.xx.xx as ip (ofcourse I enter a real public IP)

    4. Then try to connect

    What I want:

    I want to connect as described above, but I want to specify a port number (4455) so I can connect to a different port rather than 445.
