I have a home network behind a router with cable internet. I am working with a group of folks and the file sizes we need to exchange exceed the file sizes on free web file sites. I have done portforwarding and have dyndns domain to handle ip changes with my router configured to update my dyndns domain if my ip changes. I have been lookng into ultraVNC and a few other flavors of VNC, simple file sharing and SShell to just set up a local volume inside of my router for us to have a filespace. I have been looking into various newsgroups, doing searches on MS, and I've read a bunch of summaries and guides on info I already know on how to set up filesharing and permissions: however, I have not got a clear picture on the best direction to take. Seems from what I've read that I my best course for just pushing files back and forth is just to use simple file sharing on a drive I have available and restrict the users on that drive. Now for some maybe obvious questions: Can I create a workgroup for the others to join that would just be able to access the common drive on my PC? Would I need to use SSH to have the data connection encrypted or secure?
