Sharepoint ?

Hi,

For Sharepoint authentication to an extranet, using a second domain, is it best to create a new forest or use the same as the internal domain?

If you want to grant access to an existing site collection then the usual method is to extend your exisiting web application using Central Admin to create a second route in for extranet users, usually using FBA as the comment above suggests.

I'm not sure what version you are using but these links are relevant upto 2013:
