Just to get a bit more info.  These users are using the microsoft vpn to access this 2k8 server or is it a different vpn?

Are they able to access the shares when directly on the network but not over the VPN?

Yes

I'm sure you have rebooted.

What is the error message it is throwing?

Are you able to ping the server name or IP (whatever the share is using) across the vpn?

Can you telnet to the server on port 135?
Your help has saved me hundreds of hours of internet surfing.

Do you see any shares at all when browsing?
Check whether the Server service runs if you do not see shares.

Is the issue related to VPN connections only?

If you can't access shares because of Access Denied messages, check both the Security of shares and of the folder they are on.

Here is what I found. Which is weird!
If I type the name of the server in explorer I can see the shares. This just started all of a sudden?
