Joining a domain through a VPN

I have a VPN created using 2 appliances. The VPN is working and I am using terminal services through it. However, my clients can't browse my network. I want to join them to my domain (WIN2k).

The Clients subnet is 192.168.72.x; gateway
and mine is 192.168.71.x; gateway

The clients use a dynamic WAN IP and I use a static WAN IP.

I have netbios activated on each appliance, but I still can't see anything.

I am also unable to ping in either direction.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated as I am racking my brain here. I am sure that there is a piece of the puzzle missing.

I have not created any static routes (not much experience here) The routers have created some routes automatically for the local LAN and the WAN interface for each appliance.

for it has 2 routes: through gateway through gatewway (this is actually the WAN access as go through my ISPs manged router to get access to the Internet - this does not seem to interfere with anything because the VPN is working)

HELP!!!PLEASE!!!!I would be forever grateful.

I believe you need to implement WINS and LMHOSTS in order to browse across subnets and connect to remote domains.
