Strange, I use the Cisco VPN client with an Airport Extreme with no problems.  There should be no reason to open anything on your Apple router.  You say it works from within your office, to your office?  Is it possible you have a local IP in the host entry of the VPN client?

Use the Airport Extreme Utility Application .. it is for OSX
If you've only a Windows PC .. use this

You'll need to open the relevant port such as 443 for SSH access

Go to the connection entries menu and click modify. You should now be in the properties for "your VPN Connection Name".  The "Host:" entry is what we're looking for.

I understand it works at the office and fails at home.  Have you tried this connection form any other location with success?
