It depends what you mean by "see". Are you talking ping, a connection
(like ssh) or Network Neighborhood. Peer2peer Windows file and printer
sharing works by broadcasting so boxes in one network would not see such
broadcasts from the other (unless you have samba doing wins).
I have not connected 2 networks, but I did successfully connect a ppp
dialup through internet to adsl to private LAN using freeswan (ipsec).
The hard part is figuring out custom iptables scripts that run when ipsec
connects, to punch a hole through your firewall.
I never could get poptop (pptp) to work because just after pppd would
start for pptp something would immediately disconnect.
