    Hi folks,

    We are evaluating what we can do to address this feedback and would very much appreciate your continued votes and suggestions on it.

    One alternative to mounting the share on-premises over port 445 is Azure File Sync, which enables you to create a cache of an Azure file share on an on-premises Windows Server. Azure File Sync only sends data over the Azure Files HTTPS (using the File REST APIs). You can learn more about Azure File Sync here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/files/storage-sync-files-planning

    Please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any additional questions!

    Thanks,

    Will Gries
    Program Manager, Azure Files

    Wow this is disappointing. We are trying to come up with a way to use azure for our file shares with all the remote workers but we can't troubleshoot ever person's ISP. Why use 445??

    I'm currently looking at azure files, it has a lot of the features I want. But I need a way for my users to access these files remotely on a mobile/tablet.
