We have a selective authentication trust between two forests and the
selective authentication only appears to be working in one direction.

The two forests are Asia and America.

When America tries to access a resource in Asia that they don't have allowed
to authenticate permissions to it either prompts for logon credentials or
lets the user in .  When Asia tries to access something in the America forest
without allowed to authenticate permissions they get the Authentication
firewall error message (which is what we obviously want, but we want it to be
consistent).

When Asia users have allowed to authenticate permissions it works and when
US users have allowed to authenticate permissions, that works too.

So the issue is why does America not get the Authentication firewall message
when trying to connect to Asia resources when they don't have the allowed to
authenticate permissions?

Thanks!
