Is It In Any Way Possible to Access a UNC Path From a Machine in Another Domain Without a Trust?

We want a client company workstation, a member of an untrusted domain, to be able to access a UNC path in our domain while on our LAN. We cannot establish a trust between our two domains.  Does that make such access impossible? I suspect this is impossible even with appropriate crendentials but have been asked to verify this.

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The *workstation* won't be able to do so. A *user* logged on to this workstation will be.
Just map the drive in Explorer and click the "Connect with a different user name" when doing so, and provide credentials from a valid user account in your domain.
You can do the same from the command prompt:
net use X: \\Server\Share * /user:YourNetBIOSDomainName\TheUserAccount

If the server to be accessed is a member server, you can create a local user on this system as well and give it the necessary permissions.
