unable to access shared files after newly re-created VPN server

long story short, i had to rebuild the VPN server, its up and everyone can get connected fine, hell i can even access the exchange server without any issues

but now the problem is that any of the users cannot access any of the file shares

domain rebuild, user's rebuilt, vpn rebuilt
shared permissions confirmed, and work from inside the normal network back and forth
those connecting via vpn cannot access shares.

windows 2003 server

Are the correct ports open for file sharing ?

What errors are there ?

Are DCDIAG and NETdiag showing no errors in verbose mode ?

I hope this helps !

what do you mean by corect ports? on the firewall? the firewall was never damaged in the intial issue so, it was configured properly before we had issues with the vpn, it would not have changed

what do you mean by verbose mode? and where do i run the commands from?

i ran the commands and attached the result, i have no idea what i am looking for.

the routing and remote access was setup to give out ips from a static address pool, this seemed to conflicth with the users home network

i just changed it to DHCP and now it works fine.
