This won't work. left cannot be part of leftsubnet. After
all, how can you route to left if it is part of leftsubnet, which
you reach by going to left which is part of leftsubnet.

Left needs to be the public IP address of the gateway. If the
only public IP address available is on the machine in front of it,
81.74.71.x, and you're doing portforwarding, then it is going to 
get very difficult to get things running properly.
