Before getting into how this might be done, what is it that you'd like to achieve? - There are a number of drawbacks and innefficiencies to extending a broadcast domain over geographical sites.
What type of WAN circuit do you have - or do you have one yet?
If it is a L3 circuit, you might want to look at L2TPv3 (Layer Two Tunneling Protocal, version 3).
If you have a L2 ethernet circuit you might be able to trunk a few VLANs over the circuit (if the carrier supports dot1q) or else you might only be able to plug in two access ports at each end of the link.
Sorry to repeat myself, but if there is any way to achieve what you want without splitting a VLAN across sites I'd strongly recommend investigating it.
We have 2 branches connected with PRI link (in the same city).
And we have client site and that has connection with only one of our branch. This connection has some limitations. We natted one private VLAN to a single public IP, and we are doing the routings and all to wards the client. For client the source IP is unique(eventhough there are several hosts)
Now we want to give the connectivity to the client site from the other branch also.
