I am reviewing a number of options for how to configure a conference network.

I am wondering if the following would work.
If I create a new server on the corporate network, and then move it to the conference location, and connect it back to the corporate network via VPN,  will it be able to provide domain authentication.

I.E will the users connecting to the conference network be able to login to the domain , Change passwords etc.
Any advice or experiences on this ?

It should,  but depends on your VPN config.  We do this often for conferences...

You need to be able to route the traffic at both ends and not use NAT or any packet filtering and not block any important ports.

yes you can do this, however make sure you configure sites within sites and services and that you have DNS configured at both ends

also, ensure your remote DC is a global catalog
