    None of our workstations use a VPN to connect at all. We use VPN tunnels/firewalls at all Local RSs and the Central RS, all on separate domains.
    Local Servers connect to ip address of Central; workstations STC via Local Server; Local Server then calls Central and saves changed data/syncs.

    (At least this is how I understand it.)
    One point of clarification (which may be exactly what Cliff is saying) ...

    The local workstations absolutely need a connection to BOTH the Local Server and the Central Server:

    1. The workstations need access to the Central Server (via VPN or VPN tunnel) in order to check object permissions and borrow objects/worksets. No actual file data is transferred between the local workstations and the Central Server.

    2. The workstations sync file data directly to/from the Local Server, which then, in turn syncs the file data with the Central Server.

        The workstation also contacts the central server before syncing so that the central server can lock the central file via a lock file.
