I have had similar problems and have found the solution. I will be glad to share the answer if you contact me directly at machowski1@verizon.net.

You will not believe how simple the solution is. The problem was finding it.

No hostages here just wanted to know if people really replied to these things.

Solution: Using the Vpn connect to your network, Once connected open
windows explore and right click on computer.
Then Click on Add a network location. Click next. Click on choose a custom network location, click next.
Enter the location of the folder on the network that you need access to. click next. Enter your user name and password. If ask for. (not needed if you are doing this for other folders) Click next.
Enter a name for this location or use default. Click next. click finish.
Then in widows explorer click on computer you should see the network location you just created.
You will have to do this for each root folder location you have access to on the vpn network.

Good Luck.
