How to redirect / route / bridge VPN traffic to back standing LAN?

By milkywayfarer ·
There are two computers one "HOME" with Ubuntu 10.10 installed, and another "WORK" with WinXP installed, both with administrative rights access available. WORK PC is behind draconian firewall. However, let's imagine, that there is VPN connection installed between this 2 work stations, for example, with teamviewer, hamachi, openvpn, or by some other mean (by the way, what is the best mean for such purposes?).

One is interested in working with WORK's LAN resources from his HOME computer via VPN. So my question is about configuration required to be done on WinXP machine (or, maybe on both machines), to make such interaction possible?

I'm guessing that some routing / bridging stuff should be performed somewhere. But I don't know what exactly and how to do?

"One is interested in working with WORK's LAN resources from his HOME computer via VPN."

I'm having VPN connection installed between HOME and WORK. I'd like to interact with LAN resources of WORK from HOME transparently (by DNS names, just like as I'm using WORK PC).

How are we supposed to choose one for you?

Note that if you do not own the WORK network, you need to speak with the network administrator at WORK, and this person should have you sorted out, assuming that tunneling to your WORK computer is allowed at all.

If you own both networks, simply pick a product and follow the instructions. We cannot know which VPN client you would personally like more than the others.
