I have 5 mac clients and a mac server in a remote office from me.  I used to be able to access them all easily over VPN using ARD but over the past year I started having issues with some of the macs.  I am using a SonicWall TZ210 router and the built in L2TP VPN to connect to the remote network.  The VPN seems to work great and I can access all remote network resources.  I also setup a port forward in the router and am able to access my server using ARD and the external IP address (no VPN needed).  The problem I have is when connecting through the VPN i am only able to see one of the computers and connect to it.  All of the computers are on the same subnet and it is different from my home subnet.  I have tried turing remote management off and back on and even reinstalled ARD and nothing seems to work.  I installed ARD on the local server and all of the computers show up fine.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.


Thank you,


Brandon Joiner
