I was thinking that might be the solution, I was hoping that maybe there
was some option within /etc/ipsec.conf that I could set instead.
(virtual_networks ??) It is an unusual setup. At the remote site the IT
policy there is that all untrusted remote networks need to come from the
same 10.52.x.x network space. So they assigned us single allowed
ipaddress within that space ie 10.52.1.1. The problem is that we do not
use 10.52.1.1 we are 10.41.x.x/16. hence the need for the NAT.
You are correct in that this is also a one way tunnel. We can see them
but they cannot connect to hosts on our network.
