Sonicwall VPN and access to Windows server

I've got a VPN between two sonicwalls

Location 1 - TZ 170W Firewall
Internal subnet 192.168.1.2
NT 2000 Server running WINS - 192.168.1.3

Location 2 - PRO2040 Firewall
Internal subnet 192.168.2.1

I've got a vpn tunnel established between the two locations and can ping both directions.  However, from location 2 I cannot login and have my drives map on the windows 2000 server.  I also don't seem to be able to browse the network.

Any suggestions??

Thanks

Can you map a drive using the IP?
net  use  z:  \192.168.2.123\ShareName
or
net  use  z:  \\192.168.2.123\Sharename   password  /user:UserName@MyDomain.abc

If so it may only be a name resolution issue.
Make sure any software firewalls are disabled for testing as well.

Login to both Sonicwall devices and go to the VPN Section. Click on the configuration for this VPN tunnel and click on advance tab. Put a check next to line for allowing Netbios broadcast. Do this on both devices.
