Windows 7: Connecting two computers together.

Connecting two computers together.

I have an Eee PC and my main Desktop, both are running Windows 7 (same build.)
I want to be able to use a Homegroup, I really like the idea of it, but I want to be able to access my Desktop PC like it was in the homegroup even though I'm on another network (such as school.)

Would creating a Virtual Private Networking (via Himachi) allow me to create a homegroup between the two computers?

Any suggestions?

once you join via VPN, you will be on that network and be able to view shares as long as you setup the incoming vpn connection to allow such privledges. "allow callers to access my local area network".
