Tell the ISP that you need to have publicly routable IPs on the  
external interfaces of your firewalls in order to terminate your VPN  
clients, and that you cannot (and therefore will not) accept a  
network configuration that involves NAT translation.

If they do not make a /29 netblock available, find another ISP who is  
willing to provide a solution that works for your organization,  
rather than an ISP which insists upon creating problems for you.
