Please answer the following questions:

1. Are you using Windows ?

2. For my own clarification, when you say two networks, do you mean in separate buildings or two different networks in the same locality?

- Do these networks each have their own router, or are they both using the same router and on different subnets??

- Is each network individually interconnected to all of its network devices by via switch? (i.e. are all the computers, servers, etc on network 1 interconnected to each other via a switch?)

3. What equipment are you using?

4. Is there already a router or switch in between the two networks that will allow them to communicate with each other?

5. Network 1:
Network IP address ?
Subnet Mask?
Router IP address?

Network 2:
Network IP address ?
subnet Mask ?
Router IP address?

6. What type of routers or switches are the two separate networks using?

To answer your question of it it is possible the answers is absolutely yes! However I need more information if you wan't the configuration details. There are actually a number of ways to set this up, but I can't tell you how because it depends on how the two networks are setup and the devices being used, etc. Try to answer the questions as best as you can and I'll tell you what your options are. Try and be as detailed as possible, pictures, configuration settings, topology, etc., no detail is useless!
