I think this is obvious but I want to find out anyway. If you have a PC connecting to work VPN remotely from home over your local high speed connection. Then you've got a couple other PCs at home, I assume traffic from your other PCs will not even know about or touch that VPN tunnel.

You got it right. The VPN is created from the client machine, through the internet, to the VPN server. Only traffic from/to the VPN client is affected.

The only exception I could think of would be if you were using your client computer as a gateway on your home network in some type of connection sharing scheme.

Others PC wont access vpn tunnel in general.

But if you have configure some servises like nat or proxy, or yours vpn is configured like lan-to-lan on your's computer with vpn this will be possible.
