Configuring Mac OSX Mavericks for VPN and RDP to a Windows 2008 R2 Server

I have been trying unsuccessfully to configure a client's iMac to enable them to RDP onto their Windows server at the office.  I have configured VPN and RDP on 5 Windows computers without a problem, but the Mac is defeating me.  I have tested the configuration using my iMac but hit the same wall - the VPN appears to be established and I can ping the Draytek router that is at the remote (office) end of the link.  However. RDP fails to find the server and even pinging the server IP address just times out.  My knowledge of Macs is somewhat more limited than Windows, but I just cannot fathom where I am going wrong.  Verbose logging for the VPN suggests that the connection is working, it seems that no traffic is being password beyond the Draytek.

Any ideas?
