   I would expect a VPN to be from a fixed IP address to guard against
spoofing. If it is to a destination behind NAT or masquerading, then there
must be some kind of re-routing operation as 192.168.x.x/16 addresses are
not routable. You may be able to provide access to the destination
"boxname.fully_qualified_domain_name" but I would expect to use secure
authorisation and encryption (kerberos?).
