Samba can get by with just one port (139/tcp), which means you can in
theory do it with ssh port forwarding.
Here's somebody who got it to work with a windows client:
It goes the extra step of configuring a second loopback interface to tie
the client side of the "tunnel" to. Which you don't need to do if you
don't have Samba (or Windows File+Print) running on your client, but it's
a neat trick anyway.
