access remote shared directory

By surveymaster.shivaram ·
Hi There,
We have small office in two buildings.Both the building are connected to internet by DSL modem. Both building are in different domains Ex: abc.com & xyz.com. Abc.com running windows 2000 Active directory and xyz.com running Windows NT 4.0Server as domain controller. I want client computers running windows 2000 professional in xyz.com to connect shared directory of abc.com. I have created a network connection it connect to abc.com dsl modem ip address. I can ping abc.com domain controller. But I am unable to see this domain controller in my network places. Why?. How to map remote directory.
Thanks in advance
Shivaram

access remote shared directory

You do not have a trust relationship set up between the 2 domains. This is necessary in order to be able to browse resources in another NT-based domain. Without the trust relationship, you can still map shared resources in the other domain, but you must know the correct UNC path and must have access privileges for the shared resource to do so.

Once you setup the domain trusts (one in each direction), although you can browse shared resources, you still will not be able to connect to them unless the domain administrator responsible for those shared resources has enabled specific permissions to do so.
