If the VPN client connects to the VPN server and can't see any of the LAN PCs shares through Network Neighbourhood, then try using Universal Naming Conventions, aka UNC

To do this, they will either need to know the name of the LAN pcs host names or IP addresses.
Then the client can click on Start, then Run... and type \\lanpc and enter

This should open up the shares on the Lan pc whilst connected via VPN.

There is a problem sometimes when a Local Area Network uses the same IP addresses as a home PC would use. They often use the private address range of 192.168.0.1 and so on. This can cause problems depending on whether any of the Lan pcs have that same address in use.

Hope this helps

Thanks
Gary

Search for the hosts file on the VPN server and add the names and ipaddresses of the network client PC's manually.

I think its in winnt\system32\etc

examples are retained within the file.

The host file can be found here:
c:\winnt\system32\drivers\etc
You will need to open this with Notepad
Then add in a comment like the example:
lanpc1               192.168.0.6
(hostname)        (Ip address of lan pc)
