Cannot see redirected folders on the remote Win Server when connecting with Mac client over VPN

The problem started about 11 months earlier. There is no error. Problem: the defined "Redirect" folders on the Mac client no longer show up on the Windows server and now I cannot transfer files between these two computers. What ports are used by remote desktop for this feature? Also, what other ports are required by RD? I'm sure the Win server was updated around that time with a newer patch. Troubleshooting involved many steps, including: recreating the defined folders on the Mac side. Updating the RD software. Recreating shares on the Windows side but was not able to initiate share over VPN.... Please advise!
