Browsing VPN connections

VPN

I have a VPN client on a home XP Pro machine.
The VPN Server is on a work W2K3 Server.
The router/DSL IP is dynamically allocated by the ISP so I am using a Dynamic DNS service to alias the dynamic IP address to a static hostname.
The connection works fine.
I can ping the server both by name and IP.
ipconfig /all show the servers IP for both DNS Server and Primary WINS Server.
Drives can be mapped using the computer name so name resolution appears to be working.
My home IP addresses are in the range 192.168.2.x
My work IP addresses are in the range 10.0.11.x
I do not want to use LMHOSTS and don't think I should have to since the server is using WINS.
All that is the good news.

The bad news is that I can not browse the machines on the VPN using Window Explorer/My Network Places/Entire Network/Microsoft Networks. The machines on my home network (192.168.2.x) show fine but the ones at work (10.0.11.x) do not show. Could the problem be that I am using to different private SubNet ranges? If so why does everything else except for browsing work.
