Non-typical routing situation

diagramI have 2 sites that I'm working with, Spokane and Bellevue.  We are doing a bunch cleanup and consolidation to make the Bellevue site easier to manage remotely.  I have a server that we virtualized, then sent the hardware to the Spokane site.  The sites are 300 miles apart.  What I didn't realize, is there is a dongle on the physical server that is used for licensing the software on that server.  I need to shutdown the virtual instance of the server and bring up the old physical one at the Spokane site.  I am having a hard time with how that routing should work.  Any thoughts on how I can make that work?  Even if I change the IP to a Spokane side one, it still needs to be accessible from the same public ip address.  It's 2 separate ISP's for the 2 sites.  Attached is a diagram.  Those are Cisco 3750 layer 3 switches with a point to point private line between the sites (not VPN).  ASA firewalls at the top.  Thanks!

I assume the Bellevue site's Internet IP is the public one you referenced (the 162.17.x.x.).
Before we get too deep into this, are you sure the dongle is tied to the public IP and not the MAC of the server?

we ended up sending the box back to our Bellevue site.  Thank you.

I accepted my answer as we were unable to utilize a network solution to resolve this.  We had to physically send the box back to the other site.
