I think You should use the "IP Helper" address on the client vlan so that your clients in the remote office obtain there IP addressing via DHCP.

When you configure your Windows DHCP Server you can add details like DNS address, WINS address etc.

Your client should then be able to resolve the domain controller

So have you have extended your layer 2 network across a WAN cct?

You need to start thinking about how you are going to scale this network. What is going to happen if you open another branch?

Back to the domain controller, can you resolve the address of the domain controller?

How do the remote office PC's get their IP addresses?
