SMB signed packets are not encrypted. They are just signed and protected
against so called man in the middle attack. If someone would capture a
packet from PCa to PCb and changed something, ending server would figure out
that packet didn't came from PCa and would discard the packet...
My advice. Use IPSec (if you are in controlled environment - domain
environment). If you need to share this files with other on the internet in
secure way, then use SSL...
