I don't think that you can in a traditional MS filesharing sense (*maybe* if you opened a numbers of ports and used an LMHOST file).   You'd probably be much better off using FTP and web folders.

Or if you only want to share files between two sites, setup a VPN connection and use an LMHOST file then you could share files normally.
