I need to connect a Macbook Pro (Mac OS X 10.4.9)  to a Windows 2003 PPTP VPN. The VPN connects fine but when I go to the network on the Mac I cannot see any of the computers on the network. When this same computer is directly connected to the LAN it works fine. I can browse out and see all the computers on the network.

I am very new to Macs (I am a windows guy) so I am not really sure where to begin with the troubleshooting.

Any help would be great.
