Kindly check the following:

1. Make sure sufficient ports are opened for these two VLAN's so that these two servers can access each other without any issues.
2. Don't open the default ports 1433 and open a different port instead.
3. Make sure that MSDTC is running on both sides with port 135 excluded to make it work from both the sides.
4. Make sure that only authorized users are able to connect using VPN connection.
