You can refer to the below link, I hope it is useful.

or you can use some ftp softwares like secureFTP or coreFTP. But I suggest the above method will be more secure since I am not pretty sure how secure the freeware softwares are :)

Make sure in addition to setting up the FTP server (as razorBlades has advised) you setup an FTP A record in DNS if you don't already have one, pointing to your server's IP Address and open up port 21 on your firewall, and forward this to your server.
