Site to site vpn, pings pass but nothing else does.

I have a site to site vpn that we are able to ping across the tunnel both ways. When we try and do a search in the network for the server which is on a domain, it can not find it. we need to be able to pass any type of traffic between the sites as we will have Ip time clocks on the remote side.

What exactly can you ping, just the end-point VPN servers or other machines inside the network?  Are you able to ping the DNS server?  Can you resolve DNS names from the DNS server using nslookup?  Your computer will need to be pointing to your DNS server, if you want it resolve domain and computer names.  Or perhaps you have a DNS server on the remote side, and you need for it to point to the main site DNS server.
Could it be a problem resolving the name of the server rather than the VPN connection not working ? Can you ping the server by name or just IP address ?
Can you connect using just the IP address ( \\x.x.x.x) ?

Solved the problem by setting up a rule in the cipafilter to allow all traffic to and from the remote subnet. Thought we did that already. tunnel is up and working and we are able to see servers and workstaions and access files. Thanks.
what is a cipafilter?
