Ok, so I know this has to do something with how my subnets are translating but for the life of me can't wrap my mind around it.

I setup the FVS318 as the office router.  I went through the setup procedure on the client and got connected to the VPN.  Problem is that I can't ping any clients except ones in a certain subnet.  My remote LAN has IP configured for 10.0.1.2 and my local LAN with the Prosafe is configured for 192.168.0.1.

But I have printers setup in the 192.168.0.1XX range and I CAN ping those.

Please help

I am unclear as to your problem.  Are you trying to ping computers in the 10.0.1 range or in 192.168.0?

Unless the Client for Microsoft Networks and File and printer Sharing are enabled in the network properties and File and printer Sharing is checked as an exception in the Windows Firewall, computers won't respond to a ping request.  Complicating the matter, too, are the endless possible blocks put in place by any other firewall added by your antivirus vendor.
If you are in a Workgroup locally, you may also have issues with negotiating the LanMan Browse Master.
Do you need to establish shared folders or can you give us more details as to what your problem is beyond simply pinging?
