Now i'm confused. The VPN gateway uses as gateway 
for accessing the private network and the internet. The VPN client 
machine uses (eth1 on the VPN gateway) as standard gateway 
for accessing evrything. The VPN gateway now has to forward all requests 
from the client to the private network and back.

Now what prevents this routing table from doing so?
Kernel IP routing table
Destination     Gateway         Genmask         Flags Metric Ref    Use 
Iface   U     0      0        0 eth1   U     0      0        0 
ipsec1       UG    0      0        0 eth0       U     0      0        0 eth0         UG    0      0        0 eth0

regards, Sebastian.
