Need to set up a simple File up/download service under IIS.


I am a systems admin for a small business. We require a method of getting files from and too some of our clients.
Requirements are:

1. End to end encryption.
2. Files sizes up to 200Mb.
3. Nothing stored outside of Australian juristiction.
4. Useable by barely computer literite clients.
5. Workable on highly "locked down" corporate networks.
6. No chance of users accessing other users data.

We have a web server in our DMZ, running IIS on server 2008 R2. My first solution was an SFTP server. This sorta works, however it requires clients to install and configure an application, which conflicts with #4 and #5. Email does not cover #2 or possibly #1 or #3.

Next idea is to set up some sort of web site, running over SSL that will ask a user for credentials, then let them upload and download files of thier choosing, having them land in a folder detertmined by thier user name.

Not being a programmer, I am seeking a simple application that can run under IIS and give this functionality. It strikes me as somethig pretty simple, and applicable to many situations, so I figure someone must have published a free or cheap IIS based solution.

A bit more complex and specialised that I had hoped for.

After looking a numerous altenatives, looks like we will go with Synaman Professional.
