I don't think this is what the OP wanted to do. He wanted to connect two
DCs in two different offices with a VPN.

However, the way he wanted to do it (Rowland is absolutely correct here)
is not possible in AD. As he has used the same subnets on the the two
sites if I understand this correctly.
You need two different subnets at your two sites. You router/firewall
needs to connect the two sites and route the traffic from one two the
other DC. They need to have different IPs.
