Trust Relationships over WAN

By pcammuso ·
We have a PDC in our office and a PDC in a remote office at another location. We would like to establish a trust relationship between these two machines, so users in either location can access data and resources at the remote locations. How can I first of all get these two machines to see each other, and then establish this trust.

You need a Wins server or you can use lmhosts
file (no extension!!).
The lmhosts file should look like this:
x.x.x.x <serv.name> #PRE #DOM:<dom.name>
(this is one line and you need one per DC (x.x.x.x is IP of your DC))
Than do nbtstat -RR go to User Manager and you should be able to establish trust.

Depending on the kind of connection between the two offices, answer #1 may or may not work. If it's a simple WAN frame-relay or point-to-point line, and you can ping the other server by name with the LMHOSTS file, you're in good shape with that answer.

If there is an intervening firewall or if traffic travels over a VPN, it is a little more complicated because you have to make sure that the proper ports are open to allow NetBios packets and RPC communications.

Establishing Trust between Domains is easy but its a very long explanation. I honestly suggest that you read the NT Server 4.0 in the Enterprise Book as it will explain everything you need to do it including data and resources access, protocol, etc etc and all needed implementations to do such.
