I have a remote office which is connected to the main office using an IPSEC VPN between 2 firewalls.

Main office:
SBS 2003 server setup as DHCP, DNS, WINS, and Exchange server
Windows XP Pro workstations
Workstations were added to the domain through //servername/connectcomputer

Remote office:
Windows XP Pro workstations
Firewall providing DHCP and configured to give main office DNS/WINS server IP addresses to workstations
Remote workstations were added to the domain through System Properties/Computer Name

I am unable to see/browse to/access the remote workstations through network neighborhood from the main office
I am able to see/browse to/access all main office workstations through network neighborhood from the remote office

I am able to ping by name and remote control the remote workstations from the main office

Any idea's. Thanks.

Steve
