We have a 2 way fores/domain between two domains and domain1 can connect from a desktop to our VPN using domain1\user and their password.

Is there a way to have a user on domain2 to connect from a desktop to the vpn using domain2\user and their password?

What settings would the user on domain2 need and what settings should be set on the VPN server?

If you have a 2 way "transitive" trust between 2 Forest Root Domains, then domainA can login to workstations in DomainB and Domain B can login to workstations in DomainA.
I beleive that is the setup that you above?

I agree. Besides assigning Dial-In privileges for RAS you should not need to do more.

Are you using local accounts on your VPN in domainB? What are the error messages you are getting when you are trying to authenticate? If you have do it from domainA via VPN can you verify/conpare both settings on both VPN's?
