Remote access via VPN

Hello, all..

I have successfully configured  routing and remote access for several of my clients. I've also configured remote access to each company server as well as the workstations. The setup works flawlessly from any broadband connection-except my home network.

I can connect log on to each network via VPN, but cannot remote into any computer on that network via remote access. I have had other admins remote into selected servers and computers with no problem from various other locations.

I'm currently running a DC (W3K) with a Linksys wireless router (G). I have not modified the firewall settings on the router and have completely reset and reconfigured the settings. Still, VPN yes, Remote Acess to any system-no. IpConfig shows the correct settings, but I cannot ping any target machine?.

Any suggestions?

are you able to ping the machines you wish to remote to once you have established a VPN tunnel?

Any chance the office and remote networks are the same subnet? They need to be different, so if the office is using something like 192.168.0.x then the remote site needs to use something different like 192.168.1.x  If they are the same you will be able to connect but not communicate, except in certain circumstances.
