How to make non-vpn machines to access VPN server

Hi ,
I'm facing a problem with the VPN please help me.
About the problem: i belong to the company 1
We are having a dedicated VPN line connection from company 1 to company 2.Company 1 is having only 1 vpn ip while company 2 is having 30 vpn ip's. Company 2 is accessing company 1's NFS server,which is having the vpn ip.
Now company 1 wants to change the vpn ip from NFS server to Gateway machine(RHEL4 & firestarter firewall is there).Now how can i make sure that company 2 members will be able to access the NFS server through the Gateway machine
In the Gateway machine i gave vpn ip to eth3 & then i enabled the ip masquerading.But company 2 people can now only access the Gateway machine not the NFS server.

Gateway Machine
eth0 - connected to LAN
eth1 - Connected to 1st broadband line
eth2- currently nothing (supposed to be used for 2nd broadband line)
eth3 - Given the VPN ip

route -n indicates 1 default route to the internet.

How can i forward requests coming through eth3 to any of the internal client machines of my choice & vice vers.

Any help will be Great !!!
