Once you're connected, see if you can ping the LAN IP of the server.  If you can, you can probably map a drive to one of the network shares or create a desktop shortcut to the server (again, using the LAN IP).  If that doesn't work, let us know what you found and give us the model of the VPN router and let us know what OS you're using.

I also am having a smilar problem with a Linksys WRV54G. I am using the Linksys VPN Client software and can complete the tunnel. Once the tunnel is active I can ping, and access, a printserver and the router's LAN port but I cannot acces my MS SBS 2003 server or the MS Exchange message store residing there? Linksys has been NO help?
