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

Portable, direct connect server access

The ATEN CV211 connects a laptop directly to any server allowing you instant access to perform data maintenance and local operations, for quick troubleshooting, updating, service and repair.

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
