Pick your problem:

AWS's productized IPSEC VPC gateway won't do host-mode, or so I am told, and

Our customer won't do network mode, and

Our customer also won't accept IPSEC traffic that's been NATted, so we can't do
it from an AWS host cause EIPs are natted; there is, TTBOMK *no* way to get a
non-natted IP on an EC2/VPC host.
