iTunes sharing over Mac OS X Server VPN

I've configured my Mac OS X Server on my local network as a VPN server.  I've tested the configuration from another MacBook Pro that I have on my network as well.  I've connected to another wireless network in range, connected via Internet Connect to my VPN server, and verified that I can connect with Remote Desktop to my Mac OS X Server (192.168.9.100) I've been granted an IP address by the router on teh wireless network of 192.168.1.x.  

My question is, if I can ping my server which also acts as an iTunes jukebox sharing my iTunes library, and I can remote desktop to it using the LAN IP (192.168.9.100) then why can't I see the iTunes library when opening iTunes from the machine I am VPNed in with?  I've also installed Network Beacon and installed an ITunes listener, however it doesn't seem to work.  Am I missing something?

Here are the instructions I'm using for the Network Beacon:

Do you have the right ports open on your firewall (3689 and 22 I think)?  Check out this page for more detail on how to get the whole thing working:  http://www.sevitz.com/blog/2005/03/how_to_share_your_music_via_itunes_on_the_net.asp

Yes my server is actually in the DMZ.  All ports are opened, if I open iTunes on the server, I can see the iTunes share actually pop up on itself meaning that the network beacon is functioning correctly.

You mention your Server IP and VPN IP as being 192.168.9.100 and 192.168.1.x, repectively. I've noticed at the University I work for, that iTunes doesn't show across subnets. Could you change your VPN to give you an IP in the same subnet as your server? Not sure if this is a particular setting in our network or in iTunes.

Thanks - I'll try to have my VPN server assign a different IP.  I appreciate your help.
