If you mean for me to get the ip addresses from tcpdump, I already know
them.  For example. Site A machine has local ip a.a.a.a and ssh's to
Site B (which is running VPN) like ssh user at b.b.b.b  I want it to go to
c.c.c.c   What has me concerned is, if I forward port 22 to c.c.c.c,
does the machine know how to return traffic with just that one iptables
line?  Or do I need to add another line to tell c.c.c.c how to send
traffic back to a.a.a.a?

Thank you,
