It's not in general a problem unless the tunnel to work is terminated on
the CPE device itself. For the normal case, the *DEKSTOP/LAPTOP*
terminates the VPN, and so it sees CUSTOMER and WORK prefixes, while
CPE device sees CUSTOMER and ISP prefixes. WORK sees WORK and Public-IP
In the case where the VPN is terminated on the CPE device, I claim three
a) customer/WORK is sophisticated and can communicate about problem.
b) the CPE device already has a public IP on the outside, the ISP
should not renumber it.
c) the CPE device can be given a host route for it's default gateway,
and it has no reason to talk to any other host in the ISPs CGN
(Openswan installs a host route via the old default route for ESP
traffic, and a pair of 0.0.0.0/1 and 18.104.22.168/1 routes through the
tunnel if you are extruding. This avoids removing the default route...)
