    If they both have static IP addresses and you have something to handle the routing on both ends it should be easy. Get yourself a firewall on both ends or your entire network will be open to the public internet.

    You would have to set up a VPN (Virtual Private Network). This is not an easy task. You would also need permission and assistance from the network administrators at your company.

    You don't need a VPN as long as you can create a static route between both networks.
