Remote client access to domain

Specs: Windows 2000, 2 ghz / 1 gig

Looking for a bit of advice. I have been testing server OS and have a windows 2003 server and a 2000 server. I ve made both domain controllers one at home, the other in a test lab elsewhere, but what I want to do is create a user via active directory on the 2000 server and have them connect to windows 2003 located at another location in order for them to view their profile and share files.

The main issue here is that both domains have the same files to share.

Perhaps Instead of two seperate domains. I was thinking to merge them. So that way you would not have files stored on two separate servers, hence the user can update the file on one server.

What services would be required for this?

Terminal services?
Would I need to create a trust between the two domains?
Do the domains need to be replicated?

You need to do trust between domains, then only able to login to remote on another domain. post your queries to my blog.

ghengis it makes no sense to have 2000 as a DC. It is ten years old. You should only have one forest and one domain given your situation.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.
