Doesn't seem the routing is issue here because you can ping it. Try to disable IPv6. Please post back with the result.

Vista has been working great for me with one major problem:
I have a remote machine running WS2003, and have R&RA configured to allow
dial-in VPN connections. DHCP is configured for all dial-in IP/DNS/WINS IP
Using the windows XP VPN client I can connect fine to the server. I can also
browse the servers shares and (granted permissions) browse the contents of
Using the vista VPN client I can also connect fine. I can ping each machine
from the end of the tunnel. I cannot access shared folders though, nor browse
the shares of either machine.
I found a promising update from Microsoft: KB930163. This explained that a
possible cause of the problem is the incorrect metric of the route to the VPN
server. However this update did not resolve the problem.
As far as I can see, the only difference of the basic configurable
properties of the VPN connection on the Vista machine vs XP is the 'automatic
metric' option in advanced tcp/ip settings. Should this be set manually? My
concern is that the metric status may be causing the problem - and I'm not
entirely confident changing that setting.
Any help will be gratefully appreciated.
