Re: [Openvpn-users] OpenVPN 2.0 - Cannot connect to machines on LAN

if you can ping the samba server you're almost there; try accessing the 
samba server using
  \\192.168.1.117

if that works then you have to modify your WINS settings on the clients, 
e.g. do something like
  push "dhcp-option WINS 192.168.1.117"
