Hello EE,
I used to have replication of DNS working between all DCs in my branch office.
Repadmin /Replsum came back clean.
Now when I moved one of my branches behind a Site to Site VPN tunnel with Cisco ASA5525 on one side and Cisco 5505 on the other I am getting errors that that server "RPC server is unavailable"

I even went into sites and services and tried replicate now and got controller: DC1 (behind the site to site) "The RPC Server is Unavailable"  I ran dcdiag and got

[Replications Check,DC2] A recent replication attempt fail
   From DC1 to DC2
   Naming Context: DC=bergquistcompany,DC=com
   The replication generated an error (1722):
   The RPC server is unavailable.
   The failure occurred at 2014-03-13 09:10:00.
   The last success occurred at 2014-03-10 17:34:07.
   273 failures have occurred since the last success.
   The source remains down. Please check the machine.

The last success is the date before we moved them to the site to site VPN tunnel.  Is there something I need to add to allow RPC to pass?

Make sure the required traffic is allowed across the tunnel.

UDP port 53 for sure.

I don't think that it's the tunnel that is not allowing fragmentation.  You specified in your ping command not to allow fragmentation.  What the message indicates is that the packet size was too big to pass through unfragmented.

You could try adjusting the packet size that is sent through the tunnel.
I would test with prtqry.exe to make sure traffic is not being blocked by a firewall.

found the firewall needed a crypto to enable fragmentation
