Sorry but you need establish VPN between both sites using:

Leased line
Any firewall or router
Using a software (like Forefront security)

By default, Windows 2008 not support this feature natively.

Though it is possible to set up a site to site VPN between two Windows servers, even 2008 R2, this has become pretty much obsolete since server 2003.  Using two VPN capable routers is much more secure, better performance, much more stable, easier to maintain, and FAR easier to configure.  

Site-To-site with windows servers is a lengthy configuration process using RRAS, RADIUS, demand dial routing, certificates, and more.  However if interested the following is Microsoft's suggested method:
