easiest way is to create a LogMeIn account and add the remote computer.

Hi,

Generally the same segment routing will be taken care by the stack routing functionality automatically once you assign an ipaddress to the ethernet port.

But, if you want a different segment to be connected, you may need to add the route specifically
try
route add -net 192.168.10.0 netmask 255.255.255.0 gw 172.17.0.50

Both of these are in RFC 1918 address space and non-routable across the internet. Unless he's using a VPN or the other network is in some way reachable by his router... then the above won't work.

Logmein / go to my pc or one of those services is probably the <easiest> way. If you want to do with without a 3rd party solution that you're probably looking at either a site to site VPN between the gateways, a client to site VPN to the other party's gateway, or doing the quick / easy vpn solution by tunneling through SSH or something to the other gateway or nat'd to another host that has access on that network and forwarding the ports over that ssh connection.
