Server & Network Help

So, I just finished my home server and installed Server 2008 R2. I have the server, 2 desktops & 2 laptops that are all connected to my Fios Router. My parent's have a home network with 3 computers at their house and my inlaws have 2 computers at their house. What is the easiest way to get them all connected??

Thanks!

You'll probably have to use VPN to make it work. Start here:

If you're using two domain servers with public DNS records, you can potentially trust domains and put a mock forest together. You would then need to NAT the public interfaces through your respective routers.... This is only possible with static public IP addresses assigned by your ISPs.

Other than that... You'll need to attempt VPN connections like Keg suggested.
