We have connected the HO & Branch Office thro IPSec VPN. & it is Site to Site VPN

The connection status is shown as connected.

Sitting at HO I am not able to browse the Branch Network. Ping to branch office's server is working.

Network neighborhood does not cross vpn

by jdclyde In reply to VPN Connection

If you need to access a specific system, find it by the IP address and map to it.

The MS protocols that give you network neighborhood are to inefficient to be sent over a WAN connection.

Some VPN routers will allow you to transmit NetBIOS over a VPN link. You may want to make a server at the HQ a WINS server and then assign a WINS server to clients either by DHCP or manually modifying the TCP/IP properties of the NICS. Under the NIC properties you should enable NetBIOS over TCP/IP.
