Branch office, home office Auto VPN

We want to set up a branch office to have an IPSEC tunnel to our home office over a local broadband connection. If we want to use the Auto VPN feature, can this be done between the broadband site, and our Home office VIA our ISP?

Is this simply having an MX device on both ends, and both in our Dashboard?

  We want to keep the same IP scheme at the site, with DHCP provided by our servers at the home office (if possible), so that as soon as a client boots, they receive the proper IP from our dhcp server.

You need an MX or Z series at both sides and AutoVPN will work. My recommendation depending on the home office is the Z series there and the MX at the office.

Thank you, and why a Z series?

Z series is designed more for a SOHO setups. It might not be the right fit depending on the device count and features/services needed, but it is usually the most common choice for that setup. It also keeps costs down (hardware/licensing) vs the MX series.
