VPN to allow access from one Win7 computer to another one behind a router

I need to be able to give one Windows 7 computer access over the Internet to another one, that is behind a router. I don't mind setting up any required port forwarding.

What needs to work is access from the first one to the 2nd one using Windows shares, like \\computername\sharename, and other access to that computername e.g. to access a SQL server (Firebird) through a passed-through port on that 2nd computer.

I've looked at Comodo Unite and LogmeIn Hamachi but neither one seems to support that use case, as far as I could determine.

I would use Hamachi.  Then go into your hosts file  on the remote computer and add a static entry for the \\computername to the IP address that Hamachi assigns to that computer.  Then while both are connected to Hamachi, and you type \\computername, your remote computer will resolve it and have access to everything just as if it was sitting on the same network since technically it is now.

I thought I had tried that, and for some reason wasn't happy with it, but I will definitely try it again. Thanks.
