Creating Trusted Domains accross VPN for WIN2K3

Hello, I have been searching the past questions and have not really found anything that helps me out.  Here is what I have.  Two W2K3 servers in two locations.  They can ping each other over a router to router VPN.  I have tried creating secondary zones and stub zones and nothing seems to work.  These are two domains of different name.  Any help would be appreciated.

i am trying to create a trust between the two domains.  after trying to add the trust in the trusts and domains, it would not let me add the trust, said the domain controller was not available.  i can ping both domains from each side but neither will resolve to the FQDN.  i'm thinking it may be a dns issue?

i think the problem is that you will need to load a zone for each end,

ie for point 1 you need to load a secondary zone for point B and vice versa

i did that...i loaded secondary zone on domain A then secondary on domain B but would never swap records, could not connect to each other.  do you think this is a WINS issue....
