FTP Server is one way, other is a 'cloud' file hosting site.
Hosting site would be easiest. FTP Server requires you to set it up, allow specific p/w access, and if you are behind a router, set the router to allow access to your computer.
Not hard, but it takes some work... as well as getting an FTP Server, knowing how to allow remote access to your computer, easier IF you have a FIXED IP address, otherwise you need an service, like DNS.ORG that re-directs via them to your computer, and if you have a router, passthru to the proper computer must be set.
Check HERE for some instructions.
A 'file repository' on the web IS the easiest, but if you have a very LARGE file, you might not be able to find a FREE one.
