Givinging access to 2 different Domains

I currently have 2 different domains Domain1 and Domain2
I am trying to run program from a PC as a user in domain 1, the program is trying to connect to another application that is located on a server that is in domain 2, is there a way I could give permissions to this user in domain1 access to domain2? I am able to create mapping to directories in domain2 by mapping the drive as a user in domain2 but it seems different to when trying to run a program?

You need to create a trust between the two domains in order for accounts in one to be given rights/permissions in the other.  Here's a starting point for creating trusts, but the specific procedure depends on several factors, such as whether the two domains are in the same forest or not:

Ok I will take a look at this but the two domains are in two different forest.

In that case, you can either create a forest trust to link the two forests together or an external trust to only link the domains.  The link I sent has information about creating either type.
