Watchguard and VPN Connection

I have a Watchguard Firebox 1000.  All of my users can connect via VPN to the firebox but cannot browse the network.  Even though I have told the firewall to Authenticate to NT Server and have even gone as far as entering specific users to access the VPN (as opposed to groups).  It is still the same thing.  I don't think the users are authenticating to the server, just the firewall.  So they can view the network, they just cannot access anything on the network.

Please help as I am about ready to throw the firewall in a DEEP lake......

If you can open Outlook online over the VPN but not browse the network or share, then enable file and print sharing on the lan/dial up connection on the remote clients

1.) Setup a user for Firebox Authentication and ignore the NT Server authentication until you can get it working with Firebox Authentication.  As a side note, NT auth doesn't really work, just ask watchguard support ;-) They will tell you to use Radius if you want to auth against a seperate user DB.
2.)  Try to connect with this firebox user.  If you can connect check to see the IP address you are getting when you connect.  Is it on the right network?  If so disconnect and proceed to step 3.
3.)  Add to your "Any" rule to allow incoming from PPTP_Users to Trusted and outgoing from Trusted to PPTP_Users.  
Save the config up and try to connect again.  Connected ok?  Now try pinging.  Is it working?  If so, remove those two rules we created above and add specific rules for the traffic you want to allow in from the PPTP users.  For example, if you want to allow them to use http, pop3, and smtp, you would add pptp_users to your rules for port 80, 110, and 25.  Or, if you aren't concerned with getting that specific right away, just leave them in the any group, which effectively allows any traffic to flow between your VPN users and your trusted network.
