Do you mean the sites have no "always-on link" like a dial-up connection
? or do you mean there is no VPN always on, but they always have working

At the end of the day, if you want to get data out of the network to a
remote location (whether you use xymon or any other widget), you will
need to decide how that information gets there. Whether that is via the
Internet or sneakernet is up to you, but obviously sneakernet will be
less frequent and a bit more time consuming.

Once you decide on how the data can be transported, it is just a matter
of working out how to tell xymon to use that transport method. Let us
know what you come up with, and I'm sure someone will be able to offer
further advice.
