Exclamation Accessing files remotely via SMB over SSH

Hi all. I dont know if this is the right place to post but please bear with me.

I am using ES File Explorer and want to access my files remotely. From what Ive read SMB (Server Message Block) port would need to be forwarded on a router's firewall. Also SMB is not encrypted and so I wanted to access my files using ES File Explorer over SSH, using an app like SSHTunnel on my phone.

Is it possible to use SMB over SSH without opening SMB port? Thanks

ssh into ur ssh server and forward from any port above 1024 since thats the android restriction to 445 (samba port).Then connect to 127.0.0.1:4450 (port that i have specified as source) via ES file explorer
