We run a pretty standard samba 2.2.7 PDC setup at each site. Each one
has it's own samba server doing duty for that office. We also have a
local DNS server for each site running their own subdomain for that
Everything is subnetted in the 10.x.x.x private address space with /16
masks. That's what we use to keep the broadcast traffic down. As I
said before, you have to explicitly go looking for anything on the other
side of the wan by its FQDN.
It's not pretty but it works.
