Can't ping or access anything over VPN (except the VPN server)

    I have a home and office network. Each are on different subnets: (home) and (work).

    At work, there is a Mac server with VPN service running amongst other things. It hands out IPs in the range.

    Both networks use an Asus RT-N16 router with Tomato installed. Previously the office used DD-WRT, and this same config worked perfectly. I recently installed Tomato at the office, and now am having issues even though I used the same basic config after installing Tomato.

    The problem is:

    I can connect to the Mac VPN just fine, and access all services that are hosted on the same server that the VPN service is running on. I can ping it, etc.

    But when connected, I cannot ping any other device on the work network (from home), access the work router's GUI in my browser, etc. Previously, this worked with DD-WRT.

    For my VPN client, I checked the option "send all traffic over VPN" and this seems to make everything work. I can access internet and ping/access all devices on the work network.
    But, I don't want this selected all the time. I only want traffic for the 192.168.2.x network to go over VPN.

    I'm not sure why this worked in DD-WRT but not Tomato, but I would like to fix it as I prefer Tomato for everything else. It seems there is some sort of routing issue, but not sure how to fix.

    Any ideas? Thanks for your help.
