It’s probably simple but I don’t know what it is.
If you view your "Client Information" tab in the VPN settings on 10.5 Server Admin, you can set what type of traffic is seen through the VPN. You'll want to make sure you list the IP ranges of your internal network as "Private". This way, traffic the network range will go through the VPN connection.
Also, you may need to check some of your firewall settings and ensure you are not blocking some traffic with a IP rule. I've created a separate network range for my VPN connections and when adding a new server, need to make sure that traffic is being allowed through the firewall. If you can, turn on firewall logging, try to access the service, then search the log file for blocked traffic which be be legit.

If you are expecting things like browse for server's (basically,
services using BonJour) to work, I believe the network protocol being
used doesn't get passed via the VPN. I recall hearing about some
third party software enabling BonJour over VPN's, that would transfer
this protocol over the VPN, but I can't remember the name.
This is very useful information on VPN server connection. Couple of months ago, I registered with one of the top 10 vpn service providers which are providing amazing services. Glad to get these services from the reputed service providers on affordable price.
