We'll need just a little more info about the addresses to answer it 
correctly.  But I'm going to assume that '###.###.N.###' is the same as 
'X.Y.N.###'.  So if the main office has addresses like 10.0.0.25 and the 
branch has 10.0.1.25, they will be able to communicate if their subnet 
mask is 255.255.0.0.

This also assumes that there is not a physical barrier like a firewall.
