Sonicwall VPN Tunnel unable to ping or RDP LAN

My business has two offices.  The main office (A) and the remote office (B).  Office A has a sonicwall nsa240 and office B has a tz210.  Currently, the tunnel is functioning properly and office B can access office A via mapped drives.  However, we have discovered that office B cannot ping any of the pc's in office A by name.  Office B also cannot remote desktop any of the pcs at office A by name except for the server.  Office A is where the main server is located and office B can ping it by name and also access it via RDP.  Why would office B be able to access the server this way, but not the desktops?  Office B needs to be able to RDP by name the PCs in office A.  Hope this makes sense.

I suppose there is a problem with WINS Server. Netbios resolution don't work over the VPN connection, so , you have to use the WINS service.

Consider that it is better to use DNS resolution to join your desktop; it will be more easy to manage DNS Server than WINS Server.

The issue was caused by sonicwall not registering the dns info on the server after applying workstations with dhcp ip's.  We switched dhcp to the server and not ip's are registering properly.

Remove DHCP from sonicwall and enable on server
