laptop network

If they need to share a common database, then you need to store it centrally.

Looks like a job for a single server at the main site, and VPN.

If you can get by with daily or weekly updates, then you only need to setup syncronization software, and a schedule for the users to contact each other.

For purity sake, you are best off to have a common database that they both (all) update from instead of relying on cross updates.
