You do not have to install the ADC on both sides.  They must have installed the 
ADC on their side at the time of the upgrade.

That would work just fine with an ADC configured on their end.  They are having 
trouble accessing public folders housed on your server?  I assume that the 
folders were replicated between the sites prior to their upgrade?

There are essentially three different kinds of ADC's that can be installed on a 
server with the ADC application on it:

        1) Configuration connector - this is automatically installed on an 
           upgraded server and replicates the Exchange 5.5 directory between
           Exchange 5.5 and 2000.  This connector has a name ending in _CA.

        2) A connector that establishes the link between Active Directory and 
           SRS (the SRS is Exchange 2000's emulated 5.5 server).  There are 
           two of these connectors.  One between the SRS and Active Directory 
           a second one between the SRS and the other Exchange 5.5 site.

        3) A public folder connector for replicating public folders between the
           Exchange 5.5 and 2000 servers.

I wonder if they installed the public folder connector?  I do have public 
folder replication between Exchange 2000 and another Exchange 5.5 site (in the 
same organization) so I know that it works when properly configured.
