Unable to browse network shares via VPN

Unable to browse network shares via VPN

Iv been getting a few requests with help on a problem that users are unable to browse network shares while connected to VPN.

Network file sharing and printing require NetBIOS name resolution. The chances are that NetBIOS over TCP IP is disabled.

To resolve this issue, change the following registry values for all TCP IP interfaces from 0 to 1.
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrent¬¨ ControlSetServicesNetBTParamete¬¨ rsInterfacesTcpipXX}] “NameServerList”=hex(7):00,00 “NetbiosOptions”=dword:00000001

This should Fix the issue.
