Default How would I do this (networking)?

OK, I don't have time to fiddle around with different things. But here is what I want to do.

I have a computer that I barely use, and I would like to use it as a backup drive/server/etc. On the same network I also have my wireless laptop that I use as my main computer. I have it set up right now so I can access the backup computer's drive across the network. But I would like to take it one step further...I would like to be able to see that drive no matter what internet connection I am using (library wireless, school internet, etc.) So I have access to it anywhere.

So I need to turn that backup computer into a VPN server? And then use my laptop to connect to it??? What do I need to do?

The main reason for this is I want to use Second Copy to automatically check for file changes every 30 minutes and back up to this computer.
