    Sir, There is a difficulty to understand your problem, sorry my native language isn't English. However, according your setting (if I understood right, what you gonna do) your need is to data & internet connection through Gre as well as data connectivity mustn't be b/w restriction. If so then you need to bypass local IP in your queue setting using mangle. If that so do reply I'll make another post for the same.
