RAS VPN users viewing network resources.

We have a Small Business Server 2003.  When remote users connect to the RAS VPN, they cannot view the names of the server or workstation through the My Network Places.  Remote users need the ability to view all wrokstations and shares on the network.  Please let me know what information you all might need.  Thanks in advance for the help.

Hi,

You need to have a WINS server and all the clients have to point to that WINS

Okay, I added the WINS server (at the office) address to the TCP/IP properties of me LAN connection on my workstation (at home) as opposed to just on the TCP/IP of the RAS connection.  Now, I am able see the NetBios names of the workstations on the remote network, however, I am still not able to communicate with them.  I can see them.  If I try to ping the NetBios name, I get a resolution to a local IP address, however, all the pings are "Request timed out."  I need to be able to share the resources of this connection, so if you (or anybody else) has any other ideas as well, that would be great.

Thanks a lot.
Chris
