Cannot connect to shared resources over VPN - RV215W

I've got a RV215W VPN router.  We have properly configured it for PPTP, and added users and everyone is able to connect to the VPN remotely.   That's half the battle.


However, now that we're connected, we cannot see the internal resources.  We cannot browse the network devices, and even knowing the server's name and IP address, we cannot connect to a shared resource on the server.


We have tried both the UNC name, as well as ip address.  The server pings by IP with no problem, but will not explore the server nor even verify its existance.


So, what am I missing?  Shouldnt PPTP do this?  I have the Netbios turned on, on both the basic screen and the advanced screen.

Really?  Not a single view in 16 hours?  No product support, and no views in the forums?
