A few years ago I tried to do DFS. It worked sort of and then went to
crud. I spent many months and burned up lots of Microsoft support
trying to get it working again. Gave up on that and used ViceVersa by
TGRMN and set it up as a scheduled task every 15 minutes. I guess that
program is a GUI on top of Robocoy.
Note that your vpn tunnel is no faster than the slowest link. I hope
you have T1s at both ends.
