This is a little bit awkward. I was hoping to get a virtual wire. My 
tunnel example was simplistic, because behind each server i have at 
least 4 private subnets. If what you are saying is true, for 2 locations 
with 4 subnets each, i need 16 tunnels. And i have 12 locations.

Thanks for all your help, it seems i'm back to the drawing board.
