Windows Server 2008 browsing share through VPN

Hi!
I have just install a new Windows Server 2008 with remot access.  There is no problem with the connection.  I can ping the users but when i'm trying to access a share on a VPN client \\192.168.0.176\Data , I'm getting an error message:
Error Code 0X80004005
Unspecified Error

Any idea?

Its because in 2008 you don't use WINS eveything uses DNS.
Go to the admin tools for RRAS
Drill down to to IPV4>General and right click the option and choose new routing protocol and choose dhcp relay agent.
Now on the dhcp relay agent righ click and choose properties and add the ip address of your dhcp server.
Choose new interface and add the internal interface.
You should now be able to connect to your vpn and from a cmd prompt type ipconfig /all and your domain suffix should be listed.
Now ping the name of your servername and you should see a reply.
If not add a scope option in DHCP of 015-DNS Domain Name.
I hope this helps, if you need further clarification please let me know or if I haven't understood you question please elaborate.
