2003 network problem

our network has one 2003 server, let's call it server A, its domain is AAA. we just bought another 2003 server, server B, domain is BBB. I created Trust Relationship for A and B.
From B, I can ping and I can remote connect to A, but I don't see AAA domain in My Network Places, I can see other domains but not AAA
From A, I can't ping B with IP address and computer name. I can see BBB domain in My Network Places, but when click on BBB domain I got error: "BBB is not accessible..."
A and B are in the same subnet.
Do you know what is wrong here? please help.

Hi ithawaii,

netbios enabled on server A? no Firewalls enabled? what kind of trust did you establish?

Are these staticly assigned? Do they both use the same DNS servers? What is on A and B (AD, DNS, DHCP, IIS, EXCHANGE)??

Here are the info about our servers:
both A and B have "Default" for NetBios setting.
We don't have any windows Firewall on either A or B since we enabled RRAS
i created trust relationship for outgoing and incoming inside Active Dir Domains and Trusts
A is the current DNS server. I tried to use A as a DNS server for B, also tried B as DNS server for itself, but still can't ping.
A has static. B has dynamic IP.
both A and B has DNS, DHCP, IIS installed.

i forget to tell you that the trust relation is external
if the trusts are all verified and working, try forcing netbios on the connections
