Problem Accessing Some Network Resources

I am having a problem accessing some servers on my office network after connecting through a VPN.

I am using the Secure VPN Client - Mobile User VPN from WatchGuard Technologies. I don't know what VPN hardware is on my office side.

Connecting to the VPN works fine. After connecting I can ping server1, but not server2. Both are defined in my hosts table. Ping works the same way with the server name or IP address.

I do the following commands before accessing the servers. They both complete successfully.

net use * \\\\server1\\dir1 /user:domain1\\user1 net use * \\\\server2\\dir2 /user:domain1\\user1 I am logged in as user1 on the domain domain1.

After these commands I can access server1, but not server2, meaning that if look bring up an explorer window pointing to \\\\server2\\dir1, I see the files stored as "offline". Server1 files are actually showing the files on the server.

I don't know if makes a difference, but I have Offline Files enabled and files in dir1 and dir2 marked for being "available offline". I don't see how I ping one server, but not another. Server2 is a new machine on the network. I am running Win XP on the client. I think that we have Win Server 2003 on the domain controller.

Here is some more information that may be helpful. My support folks aren't able to fingure out what is going wrong. Thanks for any help.

host file entries are: server2 server1
