Scenario
We have 2 seperate company's operating from the same location. Both have Windows 2003 Active Directory Domains that are physicaly seperated in all aspects. There is now a requirement to have an application that runs on Domain XXX to be accessible to users on domain YYY. Users on domain YYY need to access this application on computers connected to Domain XXX.

The switches for both Domains are located in the same cabinet (Cisco Catalyst).

Question:

What solutions are availible to give users on YYY access to the application on XXX without giving them access to any other applications on XXX and ensuring they still have full access to all there own applications on YYY.

Thanks in advance

One possible solution would be to run MS Terminal Services on your Windows Server for domain XXX.  You could give users limited access to only what you require, and it wouldn't consist of making a huge networking loop in your office.  You would need to purchase enough TS Cals to allow to them to connect to the server and you may also need to adjust your user/device Cals to allow for the additional connections.  Without knowing more...this seems the easiest solution.

Hope that helps!

Thanks for your input authen-tech. Unfortunatly the application needs to be run from the desktop for a multitude of reasons. One being that documents are scanned into the software from a locally attached document scanner. terminal Services is not a viable option in this scenario.

There are ways around that.  You could make all the computers think they have a locally installed network scanner.  Check out a cost effective solution here:

It's not likely to work out otherwise.  You would need to either setup the domain xxx server with multiple network cards - one on each subnet.  Then create an account for each user in yyy on the xxx server.  Then allow them access to a shared folder with application data???  It seems like way more work than it's worth.  What's the app?  Something common?  I would seriously consider making it separate totally or sharing the database file on the shared drive as described...  can you offer more info?
