Unhappy Host access via Linux VPN

I have a linux firewall/vpn with two ethernet cards. eth0 gets high speed internet from a cable modem and eth1 goes to an internal network of varying windows boxes. There is a Win 2000 server to which I need to be able to gain remote terminal services access via the vpn. The Linux Firewall (LF) is routing internet through IP Masquearding with IP Tables. The vpn connects just fine, but once inside I cannot ping any machine other than the firewall itself. I have ssh on the LF and can use it via the vpn. I have been able to route to the Win 2000 box and use Terminal services through a Dnat line in IPTables but that does not go through the vpn. How come I cannot ping anything inside the network when logged in remotely via the vpn?
