VPN and the private network at the other side: can I reach it from my pc?

Hi experts!

Usually I am answering questions, but about networking I can use some assistance. I have a (private) client that I can reach using a VPN connection through firewalls and everything (I use TeamViewer, http://www.teamviewer.com) but now I need to access the database server which is reachable as a local network address (10.x range) from my client's pc and I need it directly accessible from my pc as well.

Is it possible to set up this VPN such that I can reach the local subnets at the other side as well? I.e., ultimately I want to connect to their database server to make it easier to assist them, and their database server is too large to simply copy locally.

Any assistance is much appreciated. I am using Windows Vista / TeamViewer / other side is Windows XP. Both behind firewalls, but the TeamViewer software created virtual IP addresses.
