[Openswan Users] iPhone VPN Connection

I work at home and use a VPN in to the office to do work. The work VPN  
is a proprietary package, so my iPhone can't use it. My idea is to  
have one of my computers at home connected to the work VPN act as an  
openswan VPN that my iPhone can connect to. This would entail setting  
up the VPN and routing packets from the iPhone VPN to the work VPN  
network interfaces. I have gotten to the point where the iPhone can  
connect to servers at work, but there doesn't seem to be any way to  
specify the DNS servers to use when the iPhone VPN is connected. Thus,  
I can't do much cause I can't resolve any work intranet server names.

Has anyone attempted such a setup on an iPhone/iPod touch, or any  
client computer for that matter, where an openswan VPN is used to  
tunnel through an unsupported proprietary VPN?
