ODBC connection to remote server

Hi,
I have two domains in two seperate locations. A Domain trust exists between both Domains.
To meet reporting requirements I would like to create an ODBC connection from a Server in domain1 to a server in domain 2.
Is this possible - and if so how?
Thanks,
Ger.

Please try to connect both server from another location.
If connected then no issue
