Problem:  Unable to browse to shared network folder when connected to the Linksys RVS400 router via QuickVPN through a SonicWall.

Clarification of problem:  We are trying to connect to a VPN network using the QuickVPN client and a Linksys RVS4000 router.  On the source side, we are on a LAN with a SonicWall separating us from the internet.  I've set the SonicWall to Allow All, and still can't browse the network folder on the destination side (where the Linksys is).  Once connected, I can map a network drive AND I can add the UNC path, but can't open the folder - it just hangs for several minutes.  I can launch remote desktop to the server, but the screen freezes while pulling up the login prompt (I get a partial window, but it never finishes painting the prompt).

If I try this same connection from outside the SonicWall, I can explore the shared folder on the Linksys side with no problem.

Any ideas?  

Thanks in advance,
Brian
