DFS Server Replication

I have 2 DFS servers that replicate to each other in FULL real time. I just installed DFS on a third server in another office. If I want to replicate the data to this server, do I just add it as a replication partner on the main server & then just display it on the new server? Or is there anything special I need to do on the new server? From what I understand, I need to set it all up fro mthe main DFS server....thanks

Yes, you just add the new server to the replication group.  Check the topology hub-spoke or a mesh.
Make sure to configure the bandwidth allocation for the new server if saturation is a possibility.
Once the DFS replication reports that the data is synchronized, add the new server within published share.
