This will make the packet look like it came from the firewall:

/sbin/iptables -t nat -I POSTROUTING -o eth1 -d $LINKSYS_VPN_IP \ 
  -p tcp --dport 1723 -j SNAT --to-source

(where is the ip address of the firewall on eth1 side)

If postrouting still has a default drop policy etc.
then this rule must be found before the accept rule,
that is why it has -I, to put it first.
