ok, let me try again.  when a workstation contacts a pdc with a udp packet
like this, and the pdc is a trusted domain controller not the pdc for
that workstation, the trusted dc sends out a response, and from memory
(last time looked at these, 6-8 months ago) it contains a SID.

i have vague recollection that there is also a mechanism to look up a
trust account (TRUST_ACCOUNT$) i.e workstation, server or inter-domain.

methinks not yet.  does anyone want to generate some UDP SAMLOGON, GETDC,
SAMQUERY packets, print them to a file (if ysing netmon) and send them
here?  the more the merrier, text-only for preference.

sounds bad.  did someone put arvidsjaur on a tea trolly and roll it out
the window or something?
