How do I set up PPTP to allow proper domain/lan navigation?

I have PPTP set up on one of my 2003 Servers for VPN reasons. When I connect to the connection from my home I can't browse my network or do pretty much anything unless I first remote into the server I connected to (can't connect to any other servers remotely from my laptop). I can't even connect to it by name and have to connect to it by its local IP on the LAN at my work. Once I remote into that system I can do what I want. Is there anyway I can make this step go away? I want to VPN in and be able to browse the network or remote in to ANY unit's I normally could if I was actually at my office.

Hello agentkolb,

Try out
Use logmein free, unless you want to pay for the pro version to support remote printing, file transfer, etc.
Also, LMI Hamachi for a VPN into your great and it's free.
