Hi, I have a MacBook pro with maverics installed and want to connect via vpn to Windows SBS 2008 server. The VPN connects ok but I can't see any of the shares. I have tested with a Windows 7 PC and can see the shares fine over the VPN. I have tried finder, go to server and entered smb:// internal ip of server but nothing !

Help please !

Can you confirm you have latest updates / patches installed?  Are you wired / wireless?  Can you ping the IP / hostname from the mac?  Vice Versa from the 2008 machine?

Are you using the builtin Mac VPN client or Tunnelblick?
