    There are 2 company's in the same building, we want to connect over a LAN.

    1. company one
    SBS 2003 server with domain A
    ip mask
    default gateway

    2. company two
    SBS 2003 server with domain B
    ip mask
    default gateway

    what is the best way to connect both company's
    The reason I would like to be able to do this is that I need client machines
    to be able to log on to either server

    Thanks Hans.

    Open to correction but I'm pretty sure you're going to have problems on
    several levels:

    1. 192.168.x.x networks are not routable so in one sense they're not on the
    same LAN
    at all. You're pretty much going 'over the internet' between the two
    2. You cannot setup trusts between SBS domains
    3. PCs can only belong to one domain at a time.

    Not sure of an approach that will resolve all three of those issues (if
    there is one).
