You can do that via the Client Side Object Model, by referencing the below DLL's to your solution

  • Microsoft.SharePoint.Client
  • Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.Runtime
  • Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.ServerRuntime

The above DLL's located at C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\Web Server Extensions\15\ISAPI\

CSOM C# Code

using (ClientContext context = new ClientContext("http://yourserver/")) {
    context.Credentials = new NetworkCredential("user", "password", "domain");
    List list = web.Lists.GetByTitle("your list");

    CamlQuery query = new CamlQuery();
    query.ViewXml = "<View><RowLimit>10</RowLimit></View>";
    ListItemCollection listItems = list.GetItems(query);

   // Load your data t gridview
   DataTable table = new DataTable();
   foreach (ListItem item in items)
     table.Rows.Add( item["Title"]);
   Gridview.DataSource = table;

Note: it's important to set the NetworkCredential parameters correctly, also you can add this info in the web config, then read it from there!
