Hi,
We have an SBS 2003 (std edition) server with all service packs and updates applied. 2 remote users out of the 7 on the system, can connect to the VPN but then not see the shared resources on the server (eg if you do a search for the server and open it up it only displays a couple of system folders and not the data shares).
I have come across the problem before and disabling offline files and folders does the job - the problem is that these people need the offline folders to be available and when I re-enable the offline files the problem is still there.
One additional piece of info - when I do a search for the server with offline files disabled but connected to the VPN it cannot find the server and I cannot ping it (however it must know its there because the VPN that the machine is connected to is controlled by the server!).

Any thoughts please.
