How do I get my two way Domain Trust to allow both domain to see each other files?

I created a new domain and created a two way domain trust. After it was completed, I can go to My Network Places>Entire Network>Microsoft Windows Network and see both domains on it. New Domain and Old Domain. From the Old Domain I am able to click on Old Domain and view all the computers listed and browse each of them by double clicking on it. When I go to click on New Domain, it waits a few seconds and presents this message to me: "New Domain is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact your administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions. The devise is not connected."

Now, on the New Domain logged into it,I can go to My Network Places>Entire Network>Microsoft Windows Network and see both domains on it. When I click on New Domain, everything appears on the New Domain network and I am able to view the computers/files. However, when I go to Old Domain I am able to view the computers but not able to browse each computer. It presents me with this message:"Old Domain is not accessible. You might not have permission to use this network resource. Contact your administrator of this server to find out if you have access permissions. The devise is not connected."

Why can New Domain view Old Domain but not access its computers buy double clicking on it, and why Old Domain cannot even enter New Domain without "remoting" in to it?

Although the domains are truested, your domain user will not have access to the other domain, unless you add it into the domain administrators within that domain.  If you get me..

yup the trust just allows you to share the permissions structure.  You still have to assign the permissions.

If you go to add permissions you will see you can add users and groups from both domains, but but default it does not grant any permissions for you.

So, all you have to do is go to each domain's  built-in "Administrators" group and add each other's Domain Admins group as the member of just add your domain admin account.

After hours of research, the Trust was setup as a Child domain trust. I had to break the trust, reconfigured the server again, then recreated the DNS using dcpromo. I kept the two Domains apart, I didn't do a two-way trust with the domains again. We decided to rebuild the network with our new domain. It will take a few months to move everyone over, due to different subnets. Thanks for all your help.
