Hi,
Can anyone tell me the best way of accesing folders that reside on my server from home.  This is for a user who needs access to files and folders and to be able to save into them from home.
Is there any easy way instead of setting up a vpn?

Understanding Web Applications

Without even knowing it, most of us are using web applications on a daily basis. Gmail and Yahoo email, Twitter, Facebook, and eBay are used by most of us daily—and they are web applications. We often confuse these web applications tools for websites.  So, what is the difference?

OK, let's put some firm points:

1-Windows or Linux? Windows=RDP; Linux=XDMCP
2-Just up/downloading files or rather working on them in realtime with Office? Because for the former I'd recommend a simple ftp site, or rsync, or svn. For the latter I'd go directly with VNC/RDP (better RDP, if Windows)

Besides VNC/RDP or similar, I cannot recommend a easy connection option. Of course you can create a FTP access, but that is unencrypted (including user and password).

Creating a PPTP VPN is easy enough to be worth it, if the options given are not sufficient.
