Ok, this works....slowly getting there!

Excellent!  Make sure the login you create for others to access remotely has its permissions set appropriately.  If you need someone to test connecting externally, lemme know via PM.

Just a word of warning.  Exposing any service to a public IP address can open you up to being hacked.  If you are not really familiar with running and managing a public facing server it might be a good idea to leave the hosting to a third party.

This is true. FTP is a wonderful protocol that is not used enough anymore because people aren't aware of the evils that can be done. If you're only allowing access to a particular folder/drive and granting access to only a few people, no worries with that as long as you trust them. If you want to send files to people that you don't know, I would stick to sendspace and megadownload.

Anyone know any ftp 3rd party hosting places?

Well I guess I'll answer my own question...

I have godaddy hosting for my website and just learned the bandwidth total resets every month. that means I have 300GB a month.
 The total 300 GB bandwidth for your account is a monthly rate that is reset after every month. writes one of the sales agents.
So, I just created a folder and an FTP user. people who have the account info can ONLY login to that folder to download and upload.

300GB a month for $8 4/month. You can't beat that for anything.

-peace
