I've tried looking here for the solution but I've been unable to find anything that works in this case.
Its a hardware LAN to LAN VPN between a Draytek Vigor 2800 series router and a 2600 series router.
I've set the tunnel up and as far as I can tell it is stable and active.
I can ping the workstations and servers from both ends but I can't open network shares, printers and faxes etc from any of the workstations.
I can however open the network shares etc on the servers on both ends.

Make sure the traffic rules on the firewall allow ports 135,137,138,139 and 445 if you want access to sharing across the network.

Is there a reason that the Drayteks have blocked all netbios activity by default?

I've ensured those ports are allowed and still no luck

Can you access the shares by browsing to the IP?  \\123.456.123.456\sharename?

Between the 2 servers yes, between the workstations no.
