Bridging multiple devices on two different LANs across a WAN

A customer of ours has several offices in New York and an office in India, and they use software at one of their Manhattan offices that only works when connected to the local network at that Manhattan office. The customer wanted his staff in India to be able to operate the software in Manhattan. We were able to achieve this goal by setting up a private network with routing between offices, and then making use of NAT to hide the IP address of the client device and make it seem like it was on the same network as the server in Manhattan.

The tools we used:

Astute readers may note that the configuration we deployed was not true bridging. True bridging is also possible with OpenVPN, but that is a post for a different day.
