When talking about restrictions on ports, you should always be clear
which direction you are talking about, e.g. "from the server's point
of view, all incoming/outgoing connections are blocked ..."

If it works with the firewall disabled, you will need to fix
your firewall configuration to allow connections to svnserve
through the VPN interface.

How to do this depends largely on your Linux distribution, and the way
you run OpenVPN. There should be appropriate help forums for that.
I don't think the Subversion users list is appropriate.

Good luck,
