It is possible, but you would be crazy to do it. If you open all the RPC ports to the internet, then it is just like not having a firewall. It leaves the pc vulnerable to a virus or other attack. If nothing else, it draws attention to your IP from all the port scanners that are searching for open services on the internet.

You would probably be a lot better off to use FTP, HTTP, or something else designed to deal with the traffic on the internet.

You should make it available via an FTP or WebDAV server.

Alternatively, setup a VPN which people can connect to remotely and they will then appear as if on local network and you can give them permission to view the drive.
