Not a question of luck, just a question of looking the docs up. You need
a route to your client's lan on your server lan unless it is the default
gateway, on the server you need a route to the lan published, typically
this is done with iroute


and on top a little iptables magic to wipe your traces from the servers lan.

And if everything fails a small dose of tcpdump to see where the packets
actually go and how they look like.
