Nt appleshare over internet

On my NT computer I have an appleshare running, and it works wonderfully when my mac is hooked up to the LAN.  I can't get the mac to find the NT computer when it's not directly wired, but is trying to connect over the internet.  Both computers are on fast internet connections (T1ish), the server has a dedicated IP address.
The server is NT4 SP4.  
How do I make the mac see the NT computer?  When I type in the IP address in the chooser, it says the server isn't responding.
Thank you.

more info:  I don't know about routing on the mac, tell me how to find out, I'll do it.  I guess the 2 subnets have no connection, beyond any connection they would have by both being on the network.  When they are wired together they are on the same subnet.

ave you tried appending the port address to the IP address seperated by a colon? You must know the port number. You can ask the server what ports are used for what with a network utility like AGNet Tools.

example:
1.2.3.4:548

I got the AGNet tools, my server IP address didn't show any thing on any of the appleshare ports.  On IP addresses where the appleshare TCP seems to exist my computer still can't connect. What do I need to change on my server and/or client?

I have a WINS server, a friend on the same service my server uses can see my shares with that, here I can only see the domain, not the computers inside. Any help?

how are you connected to the internet. Through a proxy server?. When you connect your mac to the network it can not penetrate an individual network unless you dial in to the network.

So you need to dial in with your mac to the network.

It sounds like a reasonable answer, but why do http, ftp, POP3, etc. servers work, but this service doesn't work?

When you are on a LAN the Mac is connecting to the WinNT AppleShare Services using Microsoft's implementation of the AppleTalk protocol stack.

To connect to an AppleShare volume over the Internet you need to support AppleTalk over TCP/IP, which Apple's AppleShareIP and Linux using netatalk both do and WinNT does not.
