RDP between two domains

I have two domains that are completely separate.  They are not part of a forrest.  I want to connect the two DC's with a switch so I can RDP between the two.

What needs to take place for this to be accomplished?

Nothing more than what you describe.  When you remote in, you'll need to give credentials that are valid on the host computer, but otherwise you should be all set.
You don't provide a lot of detail in this question, are your domains on the same geographical location?

do you just want to RDC from one server to the other?  (eg log onto dc1 with credentials for domain 1, then open an rdp connection to dc2 using your credentials from domain 2) or something more complicated?

As long as the Network Infrastructure is in place and you can ping the server via IP address this is all that is needed to connect. As stated above you will need to provide creds for the respective domain/forest you are RDP to. You will also need to make sure that RDP is enabled and your account has at least Remote Desktop User permission.

Ok.  So it sounds like if RDP is enabled, i can ping between and I know the credentials of both domains I'm set.  

These domains are geographically  local to each other.  Yes all I want to do is be able to log into DC1(with DC1 creds) and then open RDP and log into DC2(with DC2 creds).
Yep as previously mentioned if all that is in place it will work
