SQL SERVER 2008 Peer to Peer Replication

I am trying to achieve a Peer-to-Peer Replication in SQL Server 2008 – Configure a two-node topology

We have a head office and a branch office. Currently applications installed in the branch office connect to the SQl server via a VPN. This solution is really slow and causes the applications to stall all the time.

Thus we decided to do a peer to peer replication in SQl server 2008 :

I followed the steps listed in this article :

http://www.databasejournal.com/features/mssql/article.php/3814591/Peer-to-Peer-Replication-in-SQL-Server-2008--Configure-a-two-node-topology.htm

My Questions :

1. Do we need SQl server 2008 EE on both ends to make this topology work?(There is a comment posted after the article which claims that you need SQL Server EE on both ends.)

2. When Setting up a publication do I need to include SPs, Views, functions as well in published articles or just including the tables are enough?

Hi,

       thanks for clearing that out.

When I try to set "enable peer to peer subscriptions" to "true" I get the following error in a system sp.

peer  to peer is not possible with your application. peer to peer is  a process where both the server acts as publisher and subscriber.better use merge replication for relability
