Hi,

We have SQL Server 2008 R2 Standard edition where we have mounted our database. This server machine is connected with a leased line and authorized user can access it using static IP. In this way user can access SQL server from outside. Now our company has open a new branch office and we would like to share entire database both ends with synchronization of entire transactions. We may have new branches in future.  

How could I configure TWO WAY REPLICATION to sync entire data?
Means all INSERT, UPDATE, DELETE etc process should reflect all databases.

Please advise.

What is the bandwidth available to replication, you can do transactional or merge replication.

You need to assess which option is best for you.

As discussed in the above link, multi-point-replication poses a security risk i.e. person at any of the branch offices gaining access to the local SQL server could access/alter data on the database that will be replicated to all.

If you can have each branch have their own data set that is combined at the Main HQ, that could be ..........centrally managed/aggregated and backed up data.

The only way to have two databases replicating to each other is to use the Merge Replication.

You also have the option of doing peer-to-peer (sometimes called "Mesh") replication, where the nodes each replicate their transactions to every other node:

However, it's an enterprise feature, so licensing may be an issue here (you don't mention which edition you're currently using). Unless your connection is exceedingly slow, I'd recommend sending all of your transactions back to a single central server for writes, and you can have log shipping or some other kind of one-way replication out to each site for reporting if you'd like.
