There is no ipsec interface in transport mode. As for tunnel mode I 
don't know atm but u can still firewall the connection by dropping that 
subnet to a different iptables chain. As for the outside you can pass 
the traffic to your other ipsec gw, prot 50,51 udp 4500, 500 etc check 
somewhere the ports.
