site setting

My headquarter is running an AD and a developer software is running on ServerA. Now we are going to setup a site office consist of ServerB with 4 workstation. What is the best network design I need to provide in order to let the site office people to use the developer program which share the same database. this means when a salesman make a booking of a condo unit at site, then the headquarter will able to see it, headquarter people can't make an order on that particular unit anymore. The sales people might also want to make a booking at anytime and any where, not necessarily he is at site only.
1)Do I need to set up a DMZ to duplicate the database?
2)Do I need to create a VPN tunnel ?
3)How the AD is going to control those computers/server at site? Need to create the forest?
4)Subscription of leased line is must in order to get the online data at both side?

No. TS is just an option along with many others to restrict user access to certain resources. Again, there are several ways to do this and achieve the same affect. The VPN tunnel will allow remote users a "secure" way to communicate with the local resources at the HQ site. Once you are connected via the VPN, the information sent over the tunnel will be secure. Furthermore, once connected via the VPN back to HQ, it is assumed that you would be sitting on the "trusted" side of your HQ network. Therefore, any requests for info would be coming from a trusted user/source since it already has accessed the trusted network.

How much bandwidth do you expect to use? I don't think you'll need a "Leased" line. You should be able to get DSL or Cable with a high class of service (Higher speeds) and I would advise on getting static Ip addresses on both ends. A small SOHO router on both ends should suffice. You will need to create a site to site VPN tunnel to allow the remote site secure access back to your HQ office. This will allow you to setup who has access to what at HQ from your remote site. Hope this helps.

Simple, install a VPN client software on those PC's that would need it and point them back to your HQ office static Ip address. This will allow them the access to resources at your HQ site. They would obviously need Internet access no matter where they are in the world. Hope this helps. No other domain is necessary.

Is that secured enough? How to limit the users to only access to a specific programs using VPN client software?
I do not need create a forest at site office? How am i going to control the users using my AD policy?

Yes, it is secure using VPN for remote access. To control users can be done via the server login credentials or via TS login script if you just want to specify a certain application. There are several ways to do it which would be completely up to you. But, remotely this would be a feasible solution with low cost.

whatif I set the pc and join domain at my HQ then later bring the pc to site, then the pc will inherit with the existing domain policy, the I send the pc to the site for the user to use.
The problem is if I have any changes in policy at HQ, how am I going to gpupdate the pc? Any idea? By connecting to the vpn, will I manage to update?
