Most probably your VPN is set up wrong. Do clients have automatic MTU discovery? Because VPN introduces some protocol overhead you have to make sure the outgoing packets, combined with the VPN overhead, would not exceed the maximum MTU the network can handle.

Sorry I can't advise anything particular as I don't know particulars about your setup.
