So I have received two identical firewalls from HQ (netgear prosafe)

I have set them up and am about to configure a VPN between our two local offices, here are my questions:

1 - When I enable the VPN, does that equal as if i was connecting the two offices to each other with network cable? As in will that office now be getting their DHCP addresses from the other office, have access to network resources, printers etc?

2 - is there anything I need to do in the other office to make the two networks see eachother except for setting up the VPN tunnel?
