Can't logon to file share over VPN

I'm trying to setup a VPN between my home computer (XP pro) and my work computer (XP Pro).  My home computer is the VPN server.

I've got the VPN connection up and running, however when I go to access a share, e.g \\\ I get "Access Denied" errors.

My guess is that my work computer I'm connecting from is on a domain, and it's trying to connect to this share with domain credentials.  I want my VPN server to prompt for a login, and not just spit out an access denied error.

Any ideas?
