network browsing (using Network Neighborhood)

We are having difficulty browsing the corporate

network from our VPN clients. When our users

first login to the network, they are able to

browse the network (using Network Neighborhood)

but shortly there after, they can't. We lose

the Network Neighborhood.

Has Cisco or anyone else seen this behavior?

What can we do to fix it?

Re: network browsing (using Network Neighborhood)

The biggest thing is, you don't want to rely on browse-mastering to resolve the host names. Setup a WINS server on your network and point all your clients at it for resolution. If you are already using WINS, check your clients and make sure they are obtaining the correct WINS server(s) addresses from DHCP or are statically configured. Has anybody else seen this or similar behavior? Any more suggestions?

Re: network browsing (using Network Neighborhood)

Can you try to use broadcast to unicast configuration on CISCO router. Of cause it will consume lots of bandwidth.
