    Any thoughts or advice gratefully received:

    We have a few different working locations/offices; from our main location/office we have a mac mini server system that operates as an OD master for around 10 terminals located there.

    Our staff team are moving between this and another office more and more frequently, and that is causing issues. Is there a way of running an OD replica of the master that syncs or simply works over the net in that second office?

    Thanks in advance!

    The first thing that comes to mind is setting up a 1-1 NAT. So in a nutshell have your master server's IP behind the FW, with a 1-1 NAT using the static IP. Requests from the Replica will hit the firewall at the static IP, then ports associated (UDP/TCP 636 and 389 for LDAP) are sent to the master via routing.
    Mine are passing to another subnet and I've never tried this exactly, but it seems like it would work.
