I am totally stumped. I have tried playing with the routing table but no luck.

I am using Windows 7.

I have a computer (#1) with two NICs (A and B). A is a wireless interface that connects to a WiFi network that allows internet access. B is an ethernet port that a device plugs into. The device gives B an IP address. The two interfaces have different IP addresses and are on different subnets.

I'd like to access the device attached to B from a remote computer (#2). Essentially, I want to send and receive packets to device B.

I have VPN access to A. How do I access the device on NIC B from computer #2?

I hope my description is clear.

Thanks for your help.

You could try to "bridge" the two NICs.

If you open "Control Panel\Network and Internet\Network Connections" you can usually do this by selecting both the NICs and then right-click -> Bridge Connections.

Note that you will most likely lose your VPN access through NIC A during the setup process, so you should do this with local access to computer #1.
