Cannot see shared folders even using the admin account on SBS 2003 at my office when connecting to it via PPTP VPN. Have ports 1723 and 47 forwarded to server and logs in fine but can only view the default page of the server. I can ping the other clients on the LAN but cannot see them.

Do you have DNS setup properly on both client and server ?
Are you successfully logging onto the domain ??

Problem with your DHCP server configuration, it is not setup correctly, if you use DHCP to hand ip to PPTP clients, otherwise  check your settings on RRAS especially in the section of default DNS,gateway, domain name
