You can do it by providing valid logon credentials for remote domain by accessing a network share

Do you have an account on the 'other' domain? (call it DomainB)

If you're asking whether you can use your normal account to access these files, there would need to be some sort of trust relationship set up between the 2 domains, which would allow you to add your normal account (DomainA\username) to a group on DomainB that has access to all the resources you want.

Although if you can provide more information about the set up of the 2 domains, the answers you receive from here can be more tailored to your specific situation...

If I understood right, you are logging in on a serverA and trying to access a share on a serverB which is on the other domain (domainB).
Assuming you know the IP of server B and can successfully ping it with the IP or with its name, you should start your windows explorer and type  \\serverB.domainB.local\share or \\ip_of_serverB\share relacing with your names/ip's/share names.
If a connection is established you should get a window asking you about username/password
You must enter username in format domainB\remoteusername and a password for remoteusername

Domain A and Domain B hase no trust relationship in between
actully domain A located in a physical place far from domain B
each site has it's own internet
and there is a data link between 2 sites in place

Are you able to ping server B from server A by it's IP?
By it's name?

PeteJThomasCommented:
As MikeGGG is saying, with no trust relationship, there are things you need to confirm first.

1) Can you physically connect to the server in DomainB? Can you ping, or even attempt to map to a share on that server?

2) Do you have the account details for an account on DomainB that has access to all the resources on that domain? Even if you can physically connect, you won't have permissions to access anything without a valid DomainB\username account... :)

Is there a reason why you can't create a forest trust between the two domains?
Both domains and both forests need to be raised to Windows 2003 functional level. It sounds like you have VPN confiugred so you can contact the other domain.
On your domain's DNS server, configure a forwarder for the other domain, giving the IP of the other domain's DNS server. Then go to AD Domains and Trusts, go to the properties of your domain, Trusts tab, and follow the 'new trust' wizard.
Providing you have an admin account/password for the other domain, you can set up both sides of the trust from your side, otherwise, someone at the other end will have to repeat this procedure.
After this is setup, the other domain can grant the required access to the shares to users (or rather a security group) in your domain.
