As ugly of a suggestion as it mighty be... For a quick and dirty
solution, I would suggest either hosts file entry or lmhosts file
entry for the server(s) you wish to contact on the remote clients. I
lean towards hosts file - simple format. Formatting the lmhosts can
get rather complicated if you use any of the NetBIOS suffixes.
 (See: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;180094)

The next solution would be to get WINS to work over the PPTP
connection. The question is does the PPTP client get passed the IP of
the WINS server when they connect?
