My bet is that you must enable the traffic between the authentication 
port and the data flow too through the firewall to the interface used by 
the vpn. With iptables - i'm a linux guy - it can happen if it's allowed 
  connection to the vpn interface (in my case, i use openvpn, and it is 
tap/tun) in the INPUT and FORWARD chains.
