TG582n + Mac VPN (L2TP)

I have configured the ports to forward (500, 1701, 4500) from the internet to my mac. As far as I can see this is exactly the same as my old O2 router config - yet I can't make a VPN connection while I'm roaming. I don't even get logs on the router about the connection attempt...?
It works when I assign the mac to the DMZ - but I'm sure I don't want this a a solution.
So, my questions are:
- should port-forwarding be enough to enable the VPN?
- do I need to configure the router via the command line (I read other posts that talk of unbinding stuff? but these don't seem to be the same type of VPN)
- do I need to use the DMZ - don't really want this...
Many thanks,
Derek

IPSec is commonly used in association with L2TP so I would suggest trying the unbind of ike & esp
