File Server Problem

Scenario:

Server1 is on our domain, located at Site A and functions as a file server.  All clients at Site A can access the server without issue.

Site B is connected to Site A via IPSEC VPN tunnel.  All clients at Site B can ping Server1 by name and IP.  They cannot access its shares though.  A 'net view server1', 'net view ipofserver1' and 'net view server1.domain.local' from a client at Site B results in "System error 53 has occurred.  The network path was not found."

Clients at Site B can access shares on other servers housed at Site A.

No firewall is running on Server1.  Most recent Windows Updates were installed 5 days ago, and this problem just started up this morning, so I don't suspect an Update caused this.

sounds like a DNS issue, check the machines at site B

Clients at Site B can ping the server by name, even after flushing DNS to make sure it wasn't just cached.

server's local firewall, antivirus might be the cause. Also check with network guy if all the required ports are open between source and destination (e.g. 38, 53, 389 etc.)
