Windows 7 using VPN as a gateway for another host

I have a Windows 7 PC that uses VPN to access another network. On my source network is another machine (IBM mainframe) that also needs to access a machine on the VPN network. Can I set up the windows 7 machine to be a gateway for the one IP address on the VPN network that the IBM host needs to access?

Thank you.

I think you will probably wind up with a double NAT arrangement that will prevent VPN from connecting.

VPN works best with its own connections so connect the IBM mainframe to the other host with a proper Site-to-Site connection. VPN boxes needed on each end.
