You are supposed to have a NAT rule somewhere. Please let us know the complete 
ruleset (including translation rules) and include match counters so that 
people can figure if a certain rule is matched at all (pfctl -vv -sn -sr).
Make sure that the NAT rule has dynamic address tracking (as I think you get a 
dynamic IP from you ISP). The rule should look something like:
 nat on tun0 from $internalnet to any -> (tun0)
