Can't access windows shares (ex: \\IP@) through site-to-site VPN tunnels
On a 3 sites WAN, we have substituted ISDN connections by site-to-site VPNs over an ADSL Internet connection (using CISCO 827 Routers).
Although the VPN tunnels establish successfully and work fine for ping (~120ms), ftp, tftp, ... We have issues when trying to access remote machine's shared folders by \\192.168.102.250 or by "net view \\192.168.102.250", while this worked fine when using ISDN.
The error we get is mostly "Network path not found". Mostly because sometimes, we have a response after 10~15 minutes and the shared ressources window finally popups.
We've unccessfully tried with no access-list/firewall rules or with client's mtu set to 1400. We've registered the @IP/Name in LMHOSTS/HOSTS files (and we can ping the 192.168.102.250 host by its netbios name).
From site 2 to site 1, the equivalent request (\\192.168.101.250) works! (This is the only one).
We are pretty sure that it is not a system related (WINS, NT,..) issue since it works perfectly with the ISDN connections without changing anything else than the routers.
We desperatly need to have windows shares working!
Thanks in advance for your precious help,
PS: below, running config for site1 (2 and 3 are bearly the same)

Thank you Afaq.
Your ideas solved a part of the problem. We also had to create a proper WINS architecture because we had name resolution issues (even when using \\IP@, the netbios name must be known to acces the shared ressources) and the broadcast resolution method won't work over VPN.
