[Samba] File Replication Question

I have a user that works in two separate locations, a PC at each location (2
days at one and 3 at the other).  We have a VPN connecting both sites and
currently we map the drive with samba, via the VPN link when off-site.  This
has been difficult because most of the time, the VPN link is slow and some
of his files are quite large.  I was thinking of putting a samba server at
the remote site and synchronizing the directory structure when he's
traveling between the two sites.

I was thinking of using rsync to accomplish this but is this my only option.
I do believe rsync will work well but I'm curious if there is any other
method like DFS.....

Any thoughts
