[Openswan Users] VPN Ipsec, I can't browse

The VPN client and all other clients and servers have the same wins and dns
configuration (the VPN client uses the same wins and dns than others when it
gets connected). Also about "Client for Microsoft Networking".

The problem is that if the VPN Client (after it gets connected) goes to
"Windows Explorer" and then "Network Neighborhoods", nothing is shown.

All other clients and servers will have to be configured to use
the same DNS and WINS server as the VPN client. Otherwise
the server \\pc is not known to the WINS server and the client
can't find it.

Also make sure you installed the "Client for Microsoft Networking"
in the network settings at the client.
