i would recommend a VPN tunnel between the machines / networks

with openvpn and "client-to-client" on a tap-based (bridged) setup you 
can even connect different networks with working broadcasts

we currently run 5 openvpn-server instances, for each external office a 
seperate one and with iptables forwarding-rules on each "client" which 
is in fact the central server for each office every machine can talk 
with each other including avahi-zeroconf which is multicast/broadcast

between routed networks there is *no* broadcasting possible
