    I have two office with two different AD forest I have some web and client server application in each company . I want to give access a user with local AD domain account to login to app locate in other forest without need of creating a new user account in other forest.( I mean user can access the other forest application with their local domain user account ).

  • I'd go with the forest trust because you mentioned client server applications. While AD FS can support rich client applications, it's principally a Web SSO application.

  • The key here is the type of app you want to share. If they are web applications, you can make it work.

    If you want to share file using SMB, or RDP access, then you need an AD Trust.

    Note that you can also build a web platform to exchange file if it does not exist. Like putting your files that you would usually share with SMB into a OneDrive or a SharePoint.
