What is the operating system of the server, and the client?
Is your setup similar to this:
If the above is the case, the firewall on the server side will only see the encrypted VPN packets, which may be using UDP ports 500, 4500, or something else.
If your setup looks like this:
(Server)-(Firewall)-(VPN Server)-(Firewall)-(Internet)-(Firewall)- (Client)
In the above, there is a firewall between the Oracle server and the VPN server, so then you will need to determine the ports that need to be open on that firewall to allow Oracle's packets to pass through the firewall for VPN connectivity. You may also need to make certain that the client and server do not negotiate a different set of port numbers to use for communication.
Have you tried using a packet capture utility on the client side?
