hi
you say you can ping the IP,  can you ping the machine name of the server?

if not,  try using net use x: \\IP.ip.ip.ip\share folder

When you connect to the server via VPN, is your workstation getting an internal DNS server entry? Or the pc you are connecting from using a Public DNS Server, or none at all?

You'll need that to connect to network resources by name, that or an lmhost file to resolve those names.
