The UNC notation assumes that your client system knows the shares you
are trying to access by their Microsoft names. If I am not mistaken,
that requires that your client receives and processes NetBIOS
information. My experience with VPN's is that NetBIOS isn't normally
passed through the tunnel unless it is specifically configured to do so.
Perhaps this is part of your problem.
