The easiest option I have found is ssh. With linux it is a no brainer. For
windows there is a package called cygwin (www.cygwin.com). This package is a
collection of linux/unix software for windows, including a fully functional
ssh server. There are lots of nice gui sftp (one form of file transfer over
ssh) clients for both *Nix and windows. Behaves similar to ftp but nothing
is transmitted in the clear. Other options abound, some of my favorites are
rdp (for windows to windows) and rsync.
The following is a port forwarding for commonly used transfer protocalls
3389 rdp (remote desktop)
Depending on the router, ftp may or may not work through a router. This is a
really short answer to a moderately complicated issue.
Hope this helps
