Can you ping the internal servers when you are connected to the VPN?  I don't usually concern myself with browsing for resources.  The easiest thing for me is to set up a hosts file that resolves the name to the internal IP address on the remote clients, or to map drives using the internal IP address.

Try WINS or an LMHOSTS file.

if your connecting directley to the 2003 server, (its a vpn server) it sounds like the "allow computer to brouse" option is set to "this computer only" not "entire network"

thats in rras, or whatever its called now, if you need me to, ill connect to a box, and see where it is.  

cheers - dp
