Openfire host site configuration & remote site spark client configuration

I have two locations.

Location_A hosts Openfire 3.9.1 on Windows 2003 server, which is also Active Directory and is on a (non Class-C) LAN ip address.

Spark 2.6.3 clients installed on the PC located within the same network as Location_A work perfectly.

What steps I need to take to connect Spark 2.6.3 clients running on PCs from Location_B, which does not have any direct connection to Location_A?

By the way, this is a great forum. Specific questions I was unable to find answers to are:

What needs to be done to Windows 2003 server’s configuration?

What changes my sonicwall vendor need to apply?

What configurations do Spark 2.6.3 clients of Location_B should reflect?

Additional note: Openfire 3.9.1 was installed using default configurations like ports, simplest embedded database (no active directory, etc), etc.

If there is a source I need to read, pls direct me there regardless it the knowledgebase related OpenFire or not. Just point me in the right direction.

Thanks in advance,
