[Openswan Users] Redirecting Tunnels

Hello everyone,

I have an openswan 2.3.1 box hosting five roadwarrior connections launched 
by five laptops over a WLAN infrastructure. The five clients are all windows 
XP and everything works just fine.

Now I want to instruct 4 of the WinXP clients to redirect their tunnels to 
the fifth client who will then act as the new VPN gateway. Only this fifth 
client should keep its tunnel to the openswan gateway. In other words I want 
the topology of TUNNELS to change from a star centered at the openswan box 
to the following:

Openswan box--------------WinXP(5)--------------------------WinXP(2)

Can anyone suggest a way to do this in a way that is transparent to user, 
and with minimum loss of connectivity and exchanged data.
