Fahad Aziz,

It's quite simple really the config is identical to the one you've setup 
(with the exception of the changed public ip), except for one small 
change leave out the (left|right)subnet for the side with no lan.

FYI, this uses the default subnet of: 221.132.xx.xx/32

Then all communications between 221.132.xx.xx and 192.168.xx.xx will use 
the tunnel. If you also want 221.133.xx.xx to use the tunnel when 
talking to 221.132.xx.xx then set (left|right)sourceip=192.168.xx.xx 
where 192.168.xx.xx is the private ip of 221.133.xx.xx.

See the man pages ipsec.conf or the doc/ directory in the openswan 
tarball for more details.

If not I can create an example config, or modify yours for you if you 
provide it.
