I can't see anything obviously wrong with the setup as you have it that
would explain why ping would work and nothing else.  There is a program
availble in OpenBSD called tcpdump that can give you good information
about what the OpenBSD system is seeing on it's end of the wire.

Using the "arp -a" and "netstat -r" commands will also give you some
information about whether the OpenBSD system has seen the other end
of the wire and whether it thinks it has a route to that system.

That would be nice...
