This issue can be caused by firewall packages installed on your VPN client computer.

Duuno on Mac OS X, the firewall is a simple defend from outside attacks sort of thing. It may be worth looking at and seeing what options are enabled/disabled in the firewall. System preferences/sharing/firewall tab
