[Openvpn-users] routed vpn and fqdn?

    Might be a simple question, but here it goes. I've got a routed openvpn 
server setup and it is working, with one exception that might be a feature 
or issue. When i connect up and i want to map a drive to my samba shares i 
have to use an fqdn instead of an abbreviated name, so for example i have to 
go to run and type in \\servername.domain.com\sharenamee, instead of 
\\servername\sharename. I was wondering if this was a feature or if i could 
push the domain portion of the hostname as a vpn parameter?
    On a separate issue my samba server does not show up in the remote 
clients' network places even though i push wins and i have samba 
broadcasting on the openvpn subnet.
