VPN Tunnel
I have two Cisco routers one is a 501Pix(located at branch Office), the other is a 515E Pix (located at main office). I've configured a vpn tunnel to the router at the main office. The router at the branch office is connected, I can browse the web and the vpn led is lit. I can connect to a computer at the main office and browse its folder using a unc path(example:\serversnamesharefolder). The problem is I cannot connect to a computer at the branch from the main office and do the same thing. what am I doing wrong? I can send the configuration also if you need it. Thanks in advance for your help.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Seems that you might need to add a route between the main office to branch.

You can do this by adding/configuring a routing protocol (RIP, OSPF, etc) in both routers so they can exchange routes to the known networks between them.
Another solution (more easy) e to configure a static route from the main office network to the branch office.

The machines in the main office network need to know the route to reach the branch office.

Hope this is the case and that makes sense to you.
Post back if you need further assistance.

    TO add to Saturno's answer, also ensure that 1) the branch PC has shares available, and 2) the security / permissions on that share include the Main office accounts/credentials...

    Thanks for the feedback Saturno. Can you give me a sample on what type of configuration i need type into the main office firewall for it to recieve traffic from PCs at the branch office. Everything seems right i don't know what else i need to type in. Oh, Sixball, the shares and share permissions are fine on both sides.
