Re: Outside access

What's the easiest, or maybe best way to have someone on the outside (internet) have access to our internal file server so they can put and retrieve files that are left for them? While I can do a lot of stuff here on our network, I don't know how tech savvy this other person is, so I need a solution that's idiot proof (as much as possible) and easy for them.

I originally thought of plain and simple FTP to one of our internet servers (and thus not allowing access all the way to our internal file server) but that would require people on both ends of the transaction to have to deal with passwords and log ins and who knows what else.


Personally I'd setup ssh and let them use WinSCP or some graphical SSH/SFTP client. Much more secure.
