Microsoft VPN and Netware drives access stopped working

After a number of trouble free years we are having a problem accessing our Netware 4.11 drives over Microsoft VPN. Previously to a power outage
that downed our Netware server NEVER had this problem.  All clients - Novell and Microsoft Novell client can access Netware drives on network
mapped drives working fine on our internal network.  Upon connecting using a external network and VPN getting "F:\ is not accessable.  The network
path was not found." errors.  Nothing has changed.  This was only after the power outage.  Tested and am able to ping the Novell server while
connected using VPN.  IPCONFIG /all shows internal network subnet and DHCP assigning correct IP.  Any ideas greatly appreciated.

I thought since there were no hits on my question that I would post what I determined the fix to be.  I thought for sure I would get all kinds of feedback from the
Netware devotes recommending that I upgrade to the latest and greatest Netware to make this work again.  As I stated in my original post the Netware drives
had always been accessable via MS VPN via MS 2000 Server RAS.  Our users all run Windows XP Pro and Novell Client SP1a.  Ran packet sniffer
Colasoft Capsa 6.0 Professional during local network connection when able to connect to Netware drives and saw Ethernet II, Ethernet 802.2 and 802.3 with IPX
packets.  Sniffer only showed Ethernet II and 802.2 over VPN from outside WAN.  Thought I should be seeing 802.3 and IPX and chased that for week before
finally rebuilding RAS and rebinding NICs to solve the problem.  Turns out IPX not needed through VPN.  I don't know how to close this question and the points
maybe someone from Expert-Exchange can do that for me.
