Windows 7: Routing PC's through Windows 7 Tunnel

Routing PC's through Windows 7 Tunnel

I setup an IPSec tunnel between a firewall at another location and My windows 7 Ultimate PC.
My home lan is, and the Windows 7 machine running the tunnel is
The other end of the tunnel is

So here's the layout>>INTERNET-->

My Windows 7 machine can ping everything on the other LAN, everything on the other LAN can ping

But nothing else on my LAN can ping the remote network, and the remote network can't ping anythign else on my LAN

I even tried configuring static route in windows itself.
But that didn't help either.

Does anyone have any ideas?

I have never used this software but it is supposed to make what you are doing very easy:
TunnelEx | expert software for data redirection

If you find it is good please post back here.

thanks but that looks like it's mostly for transforming data for emulated tunnels or sorts.
