A few possible causes:
-try using as a user name  domain\user
-the local subnet used at the client site must differ from the corporate site. For example both sites cannot use something like 192.168.1.x
-in RRAS make sure LAN routing is enabled (under properties of the server in RRAS console)
-where it is SBS the windows firewall will be enabled on the client machines. The firewall by default blocks connections from other subnets. If you use the default SBS VPN configuration this will not be an issue, but if not, you may have to disable the windows firewall or change the firewall scope options to allow your subnet (example for remote desktop protocol editing -file and print use 4 different ports: http://www.lan-2-wan.com/RD-FW.htm )
-where it is SBS, did you use the default SBS configuration? This configures the VPN, firewall, routing, permissions, and name resolution:
-where it is SBS, is there any need to use the VPN? In most cases you can achieve what you want with Remote Web Workplace which is more secure.
