Accessing file share cross forest

Posted on 2013-06-03

I have a file share in a resource forest, which users in another forest need to access.
There is a two-way trust between the two forests.

If I create the share with Read permission to Everyone, on a memberserver in the resource forest, then it's not possible to access the share at all.

If I create the share with Read permission to Everyone, on a DC in the resource forest, then I can access the share from, but inly from a DC in the user forest, and only with admin credentials from the resource forest.

What must I do to allow a plain users to access a share on another forest, without any logon prompt?

Regards

Sorry for the late respons. Something urgent came up.

The most I get of this, is that port 445 must be open against the whole user forest network.
I've asked our network guys to open up at monday.

i'll be back.

It was port 445 that needed a wider opening.
Thanks for helping.
