ePO and Distributed Repository questions

Im working with a client which has 2 separate sites linked by a VPN and ideally I would link the PCs and  and the servers (one on each site) to all be managed under one ePO server.

I have looked into enabling the second server as a super agent and using that as a distributed repository but so far I've come up against a few issues and it has raised a few questions.

So far my synchronisations to the second server have been failing for one reason or another. The link isnt very fast so ePO might have trouble synchronising but I've read about using other more reliable means to replicate the files across which I will probably try.

My main question is about how the super agent/distributed repository will work as far as pushing out agents/av clients. If I assign a workstation to the remote site and it has policies to update from the super agent server does that also apply when deploying the agent/av client or will any deploy tasks always come from the main server?

Ideally I would like to be in a position where the rogue system detection can detect any new systems and automatically push out the agent/av client regardless of what site they are in.

As a side note - if anyone has any ideas/tips etc on getting PCs to report to the ePO server when theyre not in the office ie: at home or something then please feel free to let me know :)
