Because your vpn isn’t passing multicast traffic. You can make it do so, I believe — I’m pretty sure I saw some stuff on doing just that, but I believe it requires running some sort of extra routing stuff on the server end.

The other alternative is to run a mdns proxy on your side. There are a couple out there, check the FAQ page for tunneling over ssh. I realize that isn’t what you are doing, but the stuff on mdns proxying still holds.
