 Ok, let me get this straight.  You have:

              +--- VPN -> ?
    | +-- Internet	    
	|     +-------+
	|     |company|

 What is your VPN doing?  What is the other end of the VPN?
 What's your problem?  What are you trying to do, exactly?  Are you saying
the laptop has an interface connected to the network, but you
are having problems getting clients to access it?
