Hi experts, I've setup a site to site VPN between two sonicwall tz100w's.    the VPN is working but I can only browse the server shares via IP address not netbios name.  Has anyone run into this?   I have this working at another location but cannot remember what I had to do there to get it working.

I don't have one in front of me at the moment, but I think the section is called "ip helper" in enhanced os.

Thanks aarontomosky for the comment.
I have enabled ip helper on both ends, I have netbios checked and on the end without the server I have dhcp handing out the one servers ip as the first DNS server.   What's weird is that I have another sonicwall site to site VPN setup with the servers network and another location which works but I don't have ip helper enabled on that setup...

According to this

There is a checkbox to enable netbios over the VPN. I think this is how I did it. I only used ip helper for apple mdns traffic to work right.

We have that enabled - there is one computer that was already joined to the domain on the original lan and then physically moved to the new location, which appears to be connecting to shares/exchange/authenticating ok.  This was on the back burner for a few days, let me review and I'll post more of an up to date situation.  
Thanks again for the reply aarontomosky

Recreated the VPN and it worked.  Not sure what fixed it.
