I have this grand idea but I'm not sure how exactly how to bring it to fruition.  :-)

I have a windows 2003 server at the office acting only as a file server.

 I've just ordered an External Terabyte drive for data and backups...it hasn't arrived and therefore hasn't been configured.  

I have a Linksys Wireless Router - nothing special, no VPN capabilities.  

Static IP at the office with 6Mbps Down and 3Mbps Upload Speed (supposedly)

Question - Can I configure my network so that I could backup my data from home or my remote offices via FTP to the External Terabyte drive securely?

I don't currently have a separate firewall (although I'm sure I should, I just haven't found the right one since my PIX got flooded in Hurricane Wilma)....should I have one before I implement this solution?

Please help.  

Also, let me know if you need any more information.
