Hi!
As with ipsec etc. you cannot simply edit the packages (like NAT will do). So you cannot forward the connection i would guess.

Forwarding is what all the router on the internet are doing... so if a vpn is possible over the internet, the entry in the forward chain should be the solution. However, if you have a dial-up link, it might become difficult as this usually implies nat...

Forwarding in THIS case means DNAT (even if it's called forward
in the SuSEFW ;)
