Just about everyone has a decent always-on broadband connection these days, but few people take advantage of the speed available.
What's happening with your broadband connection during the day when you're at work? You could utilise your connection to provide files to friends and your family whilst you are away for your computer.
For instance, instead of designing and maintaining a fancy website, it might simply be easier to provide your archived digital photos through your FTP server, which is accessible through your broadband connection.
If you work from home, you could set up your own FTP server so that the rest of the office can provide you with files by uploading to your FTP server, and you can provide files through a closed FTP link which requires a username and password to access the files.
zFTPServer Suite is a comprehensive but free FTP server that enables you to set up anonymous and secure access to your files. It offers advanced features such as the option to limit the number of users accessing your site, the bandwidth allocated to each user and much more.
If you combine your FTP server which a dynamic IP address redirection service you'd be able to run your FTP server with a domain name, so you can give your users a domain name such as ftp.company.com and it will be directed to your FTP server.
