    From my 2003 server I am unable to browse workstations on other networks connected with site-to-site VPN.

    For the sake of discussion, assume I’m authenticating with Domain Admin credentials.

    Here’s the set up:
    Main Site –IPSecVPN–> Remote site
    10.1.1.0


    > 10.1.2.0

    A) The server at the main site cannot browse the default ADMIN$ share of any workstation at the remote site.

    B) However, within the main site the server can browse ADMIN$ shares of local workstations
    ..and.. within the remote site a workstation can browse ADMIN$ shares of other local workstations

    So, it would seem there’s something in the VPN that’s blocking the ADMIN$ share of the workstations.

    C) BUT, remote site workstations have no_trouble browsing shares on the server including ADMIN$.

    Given A, B & C … what’s going on here?!

    Server = Windows 2003
    Workstations = XP Pro SP2/SP3
    Routers = Linksys BEFVP41

    Thanks in advance,
