How are the sites connected? If there is just the 10 or 100Mb connection and the same subnet, just plug them into a switch and it should work fine. If a router seperates them, then you would have to use different subnets or configure the router for bridging.

Are you trying to get a Metro Ethernet connection or something like Frame Relay, Dedicated Internet or MPLS? 50kms is a long way apart.

If it's a LAN extension then it should just work like a long patch cable between your switches. It should have no problem with the two sides being on the same subnet.
