EasyVPN server-client, serverside-initated traffic wont work


I've configured an ASA5510 as a central Easu VPN-server. A home office user hasa a ASA5505 that is configured as a VPN Client (the vpnclient-commands). The tunnel works great, but there is an application that initiates TCP-sessions from the Hub-lan destinated to the computer at home, behind the ASA5505 VPN-client. And this traffic won't work. And Now I am uncertain. Should this work or not?
