We have a distributed environment across different georaphical areas (connected together through VPN only).
I assume that ETL tools can't deal with such a situation. Am I right?

So how to automate the data transfer from one site to the main site?
Target is SQL Server...

I wouldnt assume the ETL tool cant work across a network through a VPN. Have you contacted the vendor? Which tool are you using?

What should condition the choice of the tool you are to be using are the two factors below:

> Data size to be synchronized: for important sizes of data to be synchronized, choose GoldenGate.  For smaller sizes, SQL Server native replication should be sufficient
> Network bandwidth: based on how much bandwidth, you may consider tools that are more or less network tolerant.  SQL Server native replication is usually sufficient.  You may also consider database mirroriing.
