Network Routing Help

Office 1. We have a VPN setup in our sonicwall that is always on allowing us to rdp into a webserver that isn't in the building.
Office 2. They use Windows 7 VPN connection to get the same thing that office 1 does. They use a VPN extension that is always on similar to Office 1 inside the sonicwall but it connects their office to HQ and office 1 is connected to HQ via our ISP.

Is it possible to route anything in the firewall on office 2 so that we can do away with the windows vpn connection?

Could we get a diagram, I am not sure I entirely follow.  Office  has VPN to web server, Office 2 has VPN extension into Office 1, but the Windows 7 has the same VPN setup to the webserver as Office 1?  Why not route all traffic from Office 2 to Office 1.  Probably just some static routes?

I'm not very good with diagrams :/ Office 2 can't communicate to Office1/HQ because it's on a residential cable modem. So we use a VPN extension from our ISP to get them connected to HQ and Office 1. Office 1 would be doing the same thing as Office 2 to connect (what we call webdocs using windows 7 vpn connection) but we setup a VPN connection in side the sonicwall that is always on, eliminating the need to use Windows 7 VPN connection. But we can't do that with Office 2 because sonicwall only allows one vpn connection.

In the VPN extension, I assume carrier provided, so you have a device at office 2 connecting the VPN extension correct

So route all your traffic, or specifically you can route the ip address of the web server over the vpn tunnel to office 1 and office 1 will route it over the vpn to the webserver

long way but possible
