Why not dropbox? 2GB's of space you could share.
How much space you looking to share?

VPN or file server, they are both about the same to set up. I personally like FTP servers, just cause I'm used to them and they can be shared regardless of location. You should "share" with anyone at that point, and they can upload to you by the permissions you give them. VPN can be set so you both are on the same network, virtually of course. VPN = Virtual Private Network, go look it up.

I second the FTP route, it's so much easier to share files. Setting up a VPN shouldn't be too hard for you and has other benefits beyond an FTP server.

FTP is just so simple though...

Here's a good place to read for starters, it's an older article, but still applies:
