Vista Business VPN Client cannot see SBS 2000 Domain Computer

Posted: 02-22-2009, 07:32 AM
I have a Vista Business client that attaches to a SBS 2000 Domain using VPN.
Sometimes when I connect, the client cannot see the computers attached to the
remote LAN - at other times it can. We also have a remote XP Client that
also attaches in the same way. We have checked very carefully that we are
using the same parameters on both machines, but can't stop the problem from
recurring
