    For secure access I have installed a BEFVP41 in our office. I want to allow employees from their homes to:
    1. connect to shares
    2. have their AV and Spyware definitions updated by the server

    I've set up the VPNs on the VP41, it is

    I'm on my system at home, behind my WRT54G, it is

    I'm using Greenbow client to connect to the VP41 successfully
    - Phase 1 is straight forward
    - Phase 2 has:
    - VPN Client address of
    - Remote LAN address of

    When I connect I can use Remote Desktop Connection and connect to shares BUT I can't get my system names working and the clients don't show up in the office net browser.

    Any suggestions?

    What do you mean by that, you can't ping by machine name?

    Right, can't ping by system name and the systems don't show in the "Network Neighbourhood"

    Have you checked to see if the "netbios" feature has been enabled on the BEFVP41's advanced setup screen?

    Yes, the NetBIOS Broadcast is checked in Advanced Settings.

    This is a BEFVP41 V2, firewall turned off.

    Is there a server at the office?

    Is it running Windows 2000 Server or higher?

    Yes there is a server, running Windows Server 2000.

    That will use DNS for name resolutions, so you need to have the primary DNS server on the client PC set to the IP address of the server.
