Ok, the main problem is that there isn't adsl links available in the
mentioned region. This is the case where a dial-on-demand & openvpn
solution can work together to deploy the connection required.

The tunnel would use the ppp(x) link to connect to the remote vpn point.
My bet is that at the "main" vpn server, you have to have a 'always up'
link to make this solution works. If there is no way to have a link always
connected - in the main database server endpoint - you can try a "crontab"
entry (at least you have to  have all the vpn links in sync with ntp)
linking the endpoints required, and shutting down the link after some time
of inactivity.

This is only one sugestion.
