Unable to access SMB shares via VPN


I have set up a VPN on my server at home. I am not using a domain.
I can ping IP's on the network I am connected to and access things like my router using a local IP address.

I can't however access any of my mapped drives.
I've tried allowing all SMB rules in windows firewall

Help appreciated
