We have had a new broadband line installed at a remote office and also at head office.

We have put a Draytek 2820 router on either end and a vpn tunnel has been established.

The remote office can now connect through the vpn to head office and retrieve its email, which is on a windows 2000 server.

However it can't see other windows 2003 or 2008 servers at the head office. It can't ping them, and they (at head office) can't access the remote pc.

The previous vpn was set up on a different broadband line, so we have just moved them across to the new broadband line, and i have changed rras to point to the new draytek.

Does anyone know why this could be?

The remote pc has the ip of, and the servers at head office have ips of 172.16.0.x.
