Can an LDAP authentication system query a child domain from the Root domain for objects?

The LDAP auth system is connected to the Root domain and it queries/finds objects from root domain without any problems, the trouble starts when we try to query users from the child domain.

Two way trusts are established. Windows 2003 R2

Any ideas?

You will have to point the query to use a GC if you want to search for users outside of the domain.  A tool like adfind lets you specify the GC.  

In ADUC you can search the entire directory.

Most LDAP authentication systems will let you select the GC simply by changing the port from 389 to 3268.
