Cant access certain Windows 2008 R2 servers over VPN from XP clients
We have been using a VPN connection to our 2003 based network fine for several years now, however now I have introduced 3 Windows 2008 R2 servers I have run into a weird problem.
XP clients are unable to ping/browse two of our 2008 servers over the VPN connection, however they can ping/browse another 2008 server just fine. All these servers reside on the same VMware server.
Windows 7 clients can however see all the servers over the VPN with no problems. I have tried disabling the firewall on the servers but this makes no difference.
Does any one have any clues?

Have you disabled all 3 server profiles?
What type of VPN are you using?
When you ping them are you pinging the IP address or the DNS name?

Yes they are applied with GP's and I checked after to make sure they were off.
The servers cannot be pinged by ip or netbios name

I dont think the VPN is the problem as I can access only servers ok.
