I'm giving you the bounty since your answer has been the most helpful, even though it hasn't quite solved my problem

comment CIFS mount issue over IPsec VPN
I just tried connecting with OpenConnect, still no luck (although I can connect over the VPN to a remote share on a different server on the same network). Perhaps there is some additional configuration flag that I need to pass to openconnect or vpnc? I've tried experimenting with --target-network=<CIDR>, but that didn't help.

comment CIFS mount issue over IPsec VPN
Thanks, that definitely helped my understanding of the problem! Unfortunately, as I mentioned to leepfrog, I'm not able to make any changes on the server side (it's a departmental server that I have no admin rights to). On the other hand, my Windows/Mac colleagues who use the proprietary Cisco AnyConnect VPN client rather than vpnc have no problem connecting to the share - any ideas why they can and I can't?

OK, but in that case, why can I still connect using smbclient?

Hi Ross, tried your suggestion and could not connect to port 445 (timed out after 2min).

comment CIFS mount issue over IPsec VPN
Regarding firewalls, I can't really make any changes on the server side. Besides it seems to me that it shouldn't be necessary to change anything on the server side in order to make this work, since (A) I can still connect to the share using smbclient, and (B) other Windows and Mac users in my department are also able to connect to the share over the VPN. Do you think it might have something to do with the VPN client? I'm using vpnc, whereas the Windows/Mac people are using the Cisco AnyConnect client.

comment CIFS mount issue over IPsec VPN
I think you might be on the right track with this being a subnetting issue. Pinging does not work over the VPN, and my subnet mask while connected via the VPN is 255.255.255.255 (so I can't possibly be on the same subnet as the server I'm trying to connect to). What I find most puzzling is why smbclient still works over the VPN.

Ok, I have edited my answer to paraphrase the content of the linked pages, and I have changed the topic of my original question to better match the content of the answer.
