for individual files FTP or emailing is probably the quickest (for setup) and cheapest since you can pretty much set up FTP for free etc...
there's the option of doing a site to site VPN...depending on your routers and setups etc...but this can (WILL) get complex and could be outside of your scope of ability (not saying it is..but very well could be)....with a site to site VPN...if both networks are using a domain structure with active directory etc...you could create a two way trust between the domains and give the users at domain A access permissions to files on the servers at doman B and conversly give domain B users rights in domain A.....the VPN stuff won't neccessarily speed up the traffic though...that's all up to the internet connection etc...
i've got a site to site VPN with a few of the seperate locations of my company...and we're in the process of making it so that all locations in north america are connected to a central location thereby giving all sites access to each other...and eventually span this connection to our locations in japan....this will handle communications and permission type deal...but the transfer rates will always be determined by the connection at each facililty....if i've got a t1 and another location has a 240K dsl or something like that...it's still gonna be slow as heck trying to get files from them..
