I have a simple Server 2003 setup to allow remote connections via vpn (This is still in testing phase) I can connect localy  via vpn and access shared folders, but when connecting via remote I connect but get permission error when trying to connect to shared folders.

Is it asking for username/password?  If so are you keying in "domain\username" ?  Have you tried IP instead of netbios name?  

Things to try:
- IP instead of netbios name.
- domain\username if asked for username and password.
- \\IP\share
- \\IP

I noticed last night when I vpn to my network from the house I couldn't see any shares either.  I was able to bring up a shared folder but I had to manually type in the path though.  Did you use to be able to see shares when you VPN to the network?
