VPN / Windows Access

Hello Experts,
I am hoping to find as much information about the following as possible.

Scenerio:
1 x Windows 2K server and 1 x SonicWall pro230. All administrative users and passwords on the Windows 2K server has been disabled or changed. The admin password on the firewall was changed as well.

There is an existing VPN tunnel established on the firewall. We would like to keep it active until the other end choose to close it. However, we would NOT want the other end to have access to anything on our LAN (servers and workstations).

The workstations share the same admin password and all machines (servers and workstations) have VNC installed.

Question:
Will the other end of the VPN still have access to anything on our LAN? (via windows network or VNC?)

Why would you want to keep the VPN tunnel up, but not give access to any resources?  If you don't want them to access anything on your LAN, remove the VPN tunnel.

heheheee... I know that would be the logical reason, but lets just assume that I can't for reasons beyond my control.

basically what kind of information is shared through a VPN tunnel?

A VPN creates a tunnel through the internet to join a machine to a network or to join two networks.  There is pretty much complete communication.  What you could do is place an inline firewall between your LAN and the VPN box.  The other end would still see the VPN connection but no hosts.
