Also, looks like there may be an issue with the OS that is a known bug regarding running WINS.

Check this out. It shows all the bug fixes for Service Pack 3.

The VPN client probably isn't getting the IPs of the the WINS server(s). Try hard coding the WINS servers' IP adresses on the VPN client connection. You may also want to use an LMHOSTS file in c:\winnt\system32\drivers\etc if the WINS stuff still doesn't work. There is a sample there called lmhosts.sam. Remove the .sam extension and edit the file in notepad. There are instructions in the file itself.

Cheers!

Check the throughput i.e. bandwidth and RPC failure. Also if there are network lapses causing the problem especially when connecting over the WAN. You can start by using trace route utility 'tracert ip address' from the command line therefore establishing where the connection breaks.
