Just to confirm the basics before you get onto the new complications, 
have the 2 sites ever talked to one another before? If not then I'd just 
hang 1 box off the connection at each end and get them talking first.

In their default configurations I'd guess each of of your Zoom routers 
is using the same private internal subnet number (just confirmed - 
192...) but will only be visible to the rest of the net via an 
ISP-provided 'external' IP address. There may be a simple firewall in 
the routers that will therefore be preventing all traffic between them.
