Share documents with proper permission to users that not in domain

How to share files to user with proper permission which is not a part of domain user? For example, there is a LAN with domain and active directory. Then we want to share file with permission read/write to a user or computer which is not a member of our domain.

Please advise.

It is far easier to give the user a domain account, and restrict that user from all other domain policies via group policy. You could also restrict that user via folder and NTFS share permissions to certain folders. If the user is in a workgroup on the same network as the windows domain , you often run into access issues trying to access the shared folders on a domain, unless the user is say, on a linux machine with samba enabled
