[Openswan Users] Multicast over VPN

The issue is that the Bonjour packets don't ever go out over the ppp
connection for some reason, even with a local ip. I think the issue is that
I need to stick to the same subnet on both my networks(which I don't think
is possible), and the vpn. The VPN server just ignores the Bonjour, however
I have had some luck using mdns-reflector to send them over the ppp
connection to the vpn client. I have not found out how to get my client
machine(OS X) to send the packets out over the ppp connection. Any ideas?
