pfsense and shrew vpn client not connecting

I setup a shrew vpn client to connect in using the mobile client option in pfsense.  Its connecting fine, but for some reason, I try to ping anything on the network, and it can't ping them.  Then I try to ping pfsense, and it times out.  I'm not sure if something could be setup wrong?  Has anyone had this problem?

I'm trying to setup this vpn because I need toughbooks that are issued in the field to be monitored by spiceworks.  So spiceworks has to be able to monitor the toughbooks by their local ips.
