Could someone please clarify this...

Is it possible to use pass-through authentication from a domain acct in
domain1 to access a share in domain2 where there is a matching local user
acct on the server with the share in domain2 (same user name & pw)? (these
two domains don't have trust setup)

I guess I am not clear that if you were to try to access a share on a server
in another domain does it pass username & password to authenticate which
might match a local acct and work? or does it pass domain\useraccount &
password in which case it wouldn't work?

Thanks for any assistance on this as it is confusing to me.
