What is your problem with samba? Your question is not clear. – Khaled Feb 21 '12 at 12:56

What is the relation of this with samba? If you setup your network right, you should be able to reach the folder. – Khaled Feb 21 '12 at 13:07
is there any way to create a file which is shared between us(you and me) ? – Süleyman Şengül Feb 21 '12 at 13:18
Yes if you give me your IP address and it is allowed for me to reach this IP. – Khaled Feb 21 '12 at 13:29

This isn't a share issue. It's a bridging the networks issue. You need to have it set up so that the two networks are routed in a way to see each other, either through a router or a computer with two network interfaces configured to act as a router. Then when traffic is destined for the other network, the router handles the translation.

Or you set up a VPN to bridge the networks, in which case you're still dealing with a routing issue.

Then you just set up your share and connect to it by mapping; easiest would be by IP, but if you have an internal DNS server you could connect by name.
