The term "browsing" is overused. In the case of "Enhanced Browsing",
we're talking about the Browse Service, which is the piece that provides
the Network Neighborhood--the list of available workgroups and servers.
Enhanced Browsing won't help with directory tree navigation.
- Are you are using old-style NBT-based CIFS or new-style "naked"
- Does your firewall filter any of the VPN traffic, or does the VPN pass
through the firewall untouched.
- If you're using NBT, do you have an NBNS (a WINS server) and do all of
the clients talk to that NBNS?
- Can you capture a trace for us?
