How can I replicate two different Exchange 2003 servers in two different AD's over two different networks?  Documentation?  The two networks are on the same floor and are physically connected.  Traffic is permitted from network A to network B but, not permitted from B to A via firewalls.  Network B needs Network A's info and not necessarily vice versa.

When you say different AD's, do you mean different domains, sites, forests ?

Does Powershell have you tied up in knots?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

The address book is possible.
The public folders is not, at least with native tools.

For the address book you could use MS Identity Integration Feature Pack 1a

This is a cut down version of MIIS.

Create contacts for the other domain, a big pain though.

Creating contacts will only give you the GAL and is a major overhead.
I don't know of any other way of doing it, and public folder content I don't know of any way at all - native or third party.

This Inter-Org Replication Tool may help with public folders.  I have never used it, but here is an article on it.  It sounds like it may do what you are looking for.
