NAT is generaly just used to provide internet access for multiple computers using 1 or just a few ip adresses.

Sounds like you would be better off setting up a VPN Tunnel between the sites or using a real router.

You might try some kind of Port Mapping on the firewall.
Catch all incoming packets to a certain port of IP and redirect the to the internal IP of the DC.

(Even Better setup a VPN server on the DC, and map a VPN port to the thing.  Afterwords use the VPN to gain access to the network, and you should be able to find the DC.)
