VPN   / IPSec? 

AFAIK that would be the only way to do it,  besides manual 
ecpryption/decryption, but since I don't do all that much with SMB there 
is a chance I acould be wrong :)  I am assuming you are using a variant 
of Windows based on Drive Paths  You could build an IPSec tunnel betweek 
the 2 machines, or are you looking for a a network wide way (IE copying 
between 2 arbritrary machines)?
