Hi All,
   I've set up a PPTP VPN system to provide remote access to my work 
LAN, but I can't get (and cannot see how to get) computer browsing to 
work for clients connecting over VPN (they cannot see any computers in, 
and do not appear themselves in network neighbourhood).
    From my understanding, every subnet needs to elect a local browse 
master - in this situation, the only machine on the subnet is the the 
client connecting via VPN, so I assume it takes on this job. But it 
doesn't work. Can anyone shed any light on this, or suggest other ways 
of doing this please
