[strongSwan] Any special settings for RDP over a Strongswan IPsec VPN?

Do you think my difficulty is because my Strongswan runs on a Linux 
server with only one LAN interface, so there is some double-natting 
going on?

Here is a picture:

(remote PC on the right wants to RDP into the Windows PC on the lower left)

I had to enter the following command on the Strongswan server to get 
traffic-flowing from remote PC to the Internet/Intranet. Just wondering 
if maybe this could be causing this issue or this command needs adjustment?

   ===> iptables -A POSTROUTING -t NAT -j SNAT --to-source <===

  ( is the Linux server running Strongswan)

Thank you so much.
