Allow users from outside of domain access to shares within domain

By Lars R ·

I have a problem (and I believe I have seen it work somewhere else):

A service running on a computer in a workgroup is running with a given username and password.

The same username and password exists in the domain where the service wants to access a share, and I believe that I have seen it work in another system.

I'm no AD shark, so can anybody tell me if I need to set up some specific trust between AD an non-AD users?

You need to setup a trust for the other domain to be able to access your domain.
Now before I give you an answer I/we need to know a few more things.

Are the 2 domains owned by the same company?
Have you got AD using in your network?
What OS is your servers running?
what access will be required from the other domain?

Keep us informed as to your progress if you require further assistance.
