I've a linux server with unimportant but very big files. I need to access them transparently through windows - so the app should not now where they are and should think they're local.

Samba does not work as my windows client is behind a firewall and the server is in the internet. Any idea? I tried SFTP but it is very slow and things like seek, ...on the file isn't supported.
