I have a Cisco ASA 5520 and I need to estabilish a VPN to a 3rd party.  Our subnets overlap, so I need to have the VPN come into a fake network that I will NAT all the other networks through to get to them.
Insite network:192.168.1.0/24
Remote network:192.168.10.0/24
So I need to creat a fake network on my side, ie 192.168.50.0/24 that the VPN will list in the tunnel.  Then I need to NAT all my internal traffic through to that fake network, so it will go over the VPN.   How do I set that up?

Why aren't you just using the public IPs through the tunnel?

That way, your inside IPs NAT first and then get encrypted through the VPN.

Two steps:

1) don't create a NAT exemption between the inside networks.

2) specify your public subnet to their private subnet (the encryption domain) in the VPN peer access-list.  let your peer know to use your public IPs at their end since the encryption domains need to be an inverse match.

btw, you could use the internal IPs and do NAT exemption as well, but it requires that you tell the other side to use a fake network as well.  It's considered a policy NAT or twice NAT type of configuration.  It's ugly but it works and is sadly more common than you might think for the exact problem you're facing.
