What version and platform are you running the Shrew Soft VPN Client on? I
assume from the smbclient reference, you are using Linux or BSD.

So in your first setup you used a Lancom client ( Windows? ) and in the
second setup you used Shrew Soft on *nix?

Assuming you are using the Virtual Adapter mode, have you tried lowering
the interface MTU to 1300 or so?
