Aside from being a terrible idea from a security standpoint..
Windows back in the day had an optional unix migration component IIRC.
It supposedly had an NFS server and client.

If I had to do this I would first investigate using utilities compiled
for Cygwin. I would probably figure out it's a bad idea and use native
windows shares and Samba on the *nix side, or WebDAV ("web folders")

In practice when I need to mount a windows share on a linux system
I've rarely had trouble using Samba as a client.

I was never able to figure out how to get a Linux machine to connect to
a Vista machine smb share reliably, and haven't been able at all to
connect a Linux machine to Win7 smb share. I'm sure there's some trick,
I just haven't found it.

As a stop gap I installed cygwin and sshd so I could at least get at my
files over sshfs, not ideal, but better then nothing.

I have enough security to protect it from the WAN, I just need a
reliable way to do remote TimeMachine backups and NFS is the best way
to go about this. Cygwin is pretty good and I've tried it, but
couldn't get the NFS server to run. Yes, microsoft had that component
but it's not for windows 7.
