this is quite subjective but wouldnt setting up an FTP server suit your needs better? Possibly try FileZilla Server.

If you are hosting files also then apache wouldnt be a bad choice for you.

http/s is my best choice because it works behind any firewall – Data-Base Dec 19 '10 at 20:56
Sure it makes sense. What language would you build your application in? – JamesK Dec 20 '10 at 9:09
mostly will be c# – Data-Base Mar 17 '11 at 7:43
