Hi,

Authenticating to SharePoint in different domain (and even forest) is not that simple. First you need to setup one way trust between domains (how to set it up depends on your infrasture and infrastructure of hosted environment), then some additional configuration of SharePoint is required: http://blog.pointbeyond.com/2012/06/08/sharepoint-2010-and-one-way-trusts-it-works-fine/.

You do this when you install your sharepoint, if its already installed you have to create service accounts and configure them with AD to accomplish this.

There is a nice article which shows how to Configure Active Directory (AD) Synchronization for SharePoint 2010.

Hope that helps

@ write2mohit
i think your solution will not work in my case since my internal AD accounts cannot access from hosted SharePoint environment.  this will work if i want to synchronize with my internal AD when SharePoint environment is internal

@ ivan_vagunin
i think you are right. can you please put me in to right direction then i can ask from my system administrator to look in to this issue.

Does your network already have an Remote Desktop Gateway?  If so then simply add a link to the gateway address/ip address

Here is the article on configuring one way domain trust in windows server 2008 http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc816851(v=ws.10).aspx.
Configuring domain trust requires AD confiuration on both sides, so you have to agree it with your host provider.
