    You would need different subnets for each site if you are using a layer 3 VPN connection which is pretty much what is used all the time. If you use the same subnet at two or more sites, you'll run into routing issues and traffic will not traverse over the VPN tunnel between sites even if the VPN tunnel is configured correctly. The alternative is to use NAT to mask the subnets being the same.

    Alternatively, you can use a layer 2 MPLS VPN. But this requires routers capable of MPLS support and specific support at the provider level. Also, VPNs with MPLS are not the same as VPNs in the common sense. The traffic sent over a VPN with MPLS is NOT encrypted. It is tagged at the layer 2 frame creating a virtual circuit very similar to how VLANs work.

    sksvats, I've edited out your email, as that is an excellent way to get yourself on some spam lists.
