Server to Server VPN

I am considering expanding my small domainn to a dedicated server rental service. I am renting two dedicated to test setting up a domain. The problem with these rented servers is that they randomly setup the servers in a different subnets and I need to setup a way to connect them together so that they can become one domain. I would asume that I need to do this using a VPN. I believe the servers are in the same building and it should work ok if I can get them to connect.

What are the steps to get this done?

if they are on different subnets that don't talk to each other you will have to create a site to site VPN.  You can do this through windows, but I prefer to do it through the firewalls or routers

I don't have control of the servers in any way regarding routers. Do you have any info on creating a persistent VPN connection?

I would use the IPSEC VPN for convenience sake.

this might be a bit easier to follow
