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?

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.
