"The reason for this is quite complicated. Your machine is still on the physical network, but a good VPN client does several things including Encryption/IPSec and Firewall.

It all comes down to policy and settings on the client, but most of them route all network traffic over the vpn link (Bridging your network and the remote one) and act as a firewall blocking everything locally."
