Create the illusion that Bonjour works over a VPN
Authored by: vansie on Jun 27, '08 08:37:10AM
I'd probably try my luck with something like mbridge, which sets up a proxy between your local network interface's mDNS services and other (external) interfaces like your VPN's ppp0.

Or, from the README:
  'mbridge' queries for and listens to announcements for instances of the
  desired service using the multicast DNS (mDNS) service discovery protocol.

  Upon discovery of a new instance, 'mbridge' announces itself as the
  provider for that service on all the other LANs. It then acts as a proxy
  between the clients and the real server.
