Macs on NT subnet

I have several Macs that I need to connect to an NT server machine.  The problem is that the Macs are on a different subnet than the server I want to connect them to.  The IP address of the NT server machine is 192.168.0.1, the subnet address of the Macs is 192.168.253.0.  I'm using a VPN over DSL to connect the two subnets.  The VPN is handled entirely by the routers and is connecting just fine.  The Macs can access the mail and proxy server on the NT network.  What they can't do is see any of the Mac volumes or printers on the NT network.

In the chooser, when I click on Appleshare, I don't see any file servers to connect to.  When the Macs were on the same subnet as the NT machine, I could select from a list of file servers.

Any help would be appreciated.

In the chooser there is a button labeled "Server IP Address". Use that button to manually enter the IP address of the server you want to connect to. Then create an alias of the mounted volume so you can simply double click it to open that volume in the future. This applies to OS 8.6 and up.
