QuestionBrowsing a Network Via VPN Connection Pin

I posted this in the now-uninhabited RootAdmin site, but I don't really expect a response and hope for better here. To wit:

At work we have a local network with 15 or so PCs and a couple of network printers connected to a 24 port switch, thence connected to the outside world via a SonicWall firewall. Since the SonicWall includes several VPN licenses, and I often travel, I thought it would be a snap to construct a protected tunnel from my Win7 laptop to the SonicWall, effectively connecting me to the edge of the network and enabling me to browse and use any of the local network resources.

I had our IT guy set it up for me for my last trip out of town, and I fired it up from my hotel room. All I could see in Windows Explorer was a single Shared folder - nothing else was visible. I checked with the IT guru today and he told me that I could connect to anything I want to, so long as I know the IP address or network name, but that it's impossible to set up the VPN to support browsing and a Network Neighborhood-style view on the remote computer.

I don't think I believe that, but since I haven't worked on PCs and networks for a living in about 10 years, I haven't kept up with what MS has been doing to make life less convenient lately. Can someone familiar with using and configuring VPN connections confirm or deny that what I want to do is possible? Better yet, can someone tell me how to set it up? If it matters, we have servers on the network, but we aren't configured as a domain and don't use Active Directory.

Thanks, as always!
Will Rogers never met me.
