Routing / IPTables question

I'm having trouble trying to understand iptables and linux routes.

I've gotten as far as doing iptables port forwards and routing specific ips to another network.

Say I have LAN A (, one of the clients in this LAN has openvpn connection to an external server ( Say the external client is currently connected as, and the LAN A client who's connected to openvpn is

I want other clients in to be able to connect to by ip, how do I do this? I routed to, but I'm not sure where to go from there. Traceroute of from other clients in LAN A shows it does get routed to but does not get a response. What should I be doing on

I'm not sure I quite understand what you wish to accomplish.

Do you have a client, "X", on the LAN connected to via OpenVPN, and would like other clients on the network to use X's OpenVPN tunnel to reach the network?
