    I am getting desprite here and would appreciate help please.
    I put in a sbs server 2003 machine into an office and am trying to connect it to another office on the other side of the country.

    What they want to do is share files on the sbs server - including the MYOB file for the company.

    The sbs server is subnet.
    ADSL gateway is
    The SBS machine is a DHCP and DNS server also.
    I have run the wizards and have successfully setup and connected using VPN.

    When I connect using VPN I can authenticate fine. However I cannot ping the sbs server. It does answer to pings. I cannot reach any of the resources on the sbs server also.

    Funny thing is is that couple of days ago I could get access.
    I have set up a static ip pool for the VPN connection of The subnet mask is

    I can remote desktop directly into the server without any problems also.
    Did I not do something or did I do something I should not have done.

    Can anyone please help
