I have the following setup on a server

Windows 2003 R2
ISA 2006 Enterprise
The server resides on the DMZ subnet of our Netscreen 50 firewall, which is linked to the external world.

I have very little experience with ISA Server and am struggling to find the relevent info on how to do the below, so if someone can tell me or give me a link it would be appreciated.

What i want to do is as follows.

On our internal network i need to share some files on a file server with the outside world (this is a Windows 2003 Server), this will be done by using internet explorer and going to a web address and putting in a username and password. the idea is then the external client will gain access to the files that they require.
I believe the ISA Server is the way to do this....just not sure how to do it, i believe it can act as a sort of FTP server???

Any help on this welcome.
