If you use IP based authentication, it is required that the client be bound
to a priviliged port, which is getting clobbered due to NAT in your case.

The solution is to use username/password based authentication. In your
protocol/server add:

    option auth.login.brick1.allow  user1,user2
    option auth.login.user1.password user1-password
    option auth.login.user2.password user2-password

And in your protocol/client volume add:

    option username user1
    option password user1-password
    option remote-subvolume brick1

Be aware that the username and password will be sent across the network in
plain text.
