    that's a very big question and you don't provide enough details to get a good answer.

    Try reading this first and then coming back here with more specific questions:

    Information that may be of use:

    1. are these networks different subnets?
    2. are these networks a mix of real world IPs and non-routable IPs?
    3. are these networks physically in the same building?
    4. are these networks connected virtually over the Internet?
    5. what is your application trying to do? is it trying to connect via a custom port?
    6. what firewalls are in-between the LANs?
    7. are you trying to connect to an already existing service? such as smtp, web, file sharing...
