Hi we run a couple of server 2008 servers geographically separated on a managed wan
The IP configuration we use is 10.xx.yy.zz where x denotes location and y denotes equipment type.

We use static addressing with a subnet mask of 255.0.0.0 which gives good access across the network, however obviously there is a problem when it comes to DHCP for either VPN devices or wireless devices as DHCP will only provide 255.255.255 etc, any ideas on a way to overcome this problem would be greatly appreciated.
