It sound like the machine at office do not forward the
packet properly or some firewall rule applied to that
machine. Because you said before, some home can see
the office fellow, so there might be another chance
that the network topology conflict. What network at
the LAN office, VPN network and Home LAN? 

Sometimes it happens for a particular machine because
that machine join another network and it makes the
conflict in network addressing scheme. Check and
change it.
