Hmmm it gets a little tricky with XP. Hamachi is proabaly an easier way. You just set it up on all 3 PCs then they can all see and access each other.

Otherwise you can probably do it if you either set up the remote computer to dial into both computers, or if you set up the main computer that it is dialing into as a router using ICS, and make sure that you have selected the option of giving VPN pcs access to the network, and theoretically the 2nd pc should be able access it, but i'm not sure if that config works.

Otherwise you could find a 2nd hand or cheap PC, throw a linux router on it (eg PFsense) and use that as your VPN server instead. Or get a router like the D-link804v which from memory has a VPN server built in, assuming you are using DSL but i'm sure there are similar ones for other connection types.

...ie Hamachi is the easier way to go!
