I am betting a firewall rules issue.  First, the WinPC sees you as a 
different subnet, and Windows Firewall is often local subnet allowed. 
This is why I put my PPtP range inside the network on unused IPs. 
( with for the local)  Then you have to 
make sure everyone has access in the m0n0wall firewall.  Now you are on 
the local subnet as far as the WinPC is concerned.  If it still fails, 
try locally to see if it is Windows.
