Connecting 2 domains over a VPN


D

Dave

Not sure if this is the right newsgroup or not to post this but here goes:

I have two domain controllers (company.com and company.hu) in two different
geographical locations linked by hardware (Watchguard) VPN.

Company.com is Win2K server based with Exchange 5.5
Company.hu is Win2k3 server based with Exchange 2k3

My goals:

Each company maintain their own email system - this seems to be working O.K.

File sharing:

Allow clients on the .hu domain to have access to files stored on the .com
server. Really, for those clients to be able to logon to the .hu server
using those credentials (example: (e-mail address removed) authenticates locally
to server .hu AND authenticates to server .com)
and be able to access certain folders on the .com
server.
This seems like it should be fairly simple, but how do you set up
the Active directory structure on both servers to allow this? The ip scheme
is 10.1.1.X on the .com side and 172.16.1.X on the .hu side, if that
matters. Routing is done on the respective firewall endpoints. Everything
pings out OK.

I have already set the bi-directional (non-transitive) trust relationship up
between domains in AD.

What would be the next step?

Any good whitepapers out there to help a newbie with this?

thanks
Dave

(1) IP connectivity
(2) trust(s)
(3) assign permissions to groups/accounts on resources

concerning the the permissioning on the resources think about WHO owns the
resource and thus is responsible for how and which can access the resource

or simply put: who manages the membership of the group for which permissions
have been assigned...the resource owner or the person managing the user
accounts?
