Can't see computers on remote network

    I just set up a vpn for the first time using an rv042 router at work & loaded the quickvpn linksys client at home.

    It says i am connected and i can ping two remote compters from home.

    But although there are shared files at the remote network, i cannot find computer names or access the shared files from home.

    I have Xp pro at home & one computer at work is Xp pro, while the other is Win98se

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    Instead of browsing for the remote systems trying typing the following into Run:

    \\<IP address of Remote System>

    eg: \\192.168.5.100
