"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You could also use sftp or FTP-SSL.    SFTP is a FTP like function that uses a ssh session, which is encrypted.  FTP-SSL is real FTP using SSL/TLS encryption.

SFTP, FTP-SSL, and VPN all encrypt the traffic, they just do it a different levels.  SFTP and FTP'ssl only encrypt the logon and data transfser, where as the VPN will encrypt everything passing through the tunnel.
