        Only Basic Authentication is available for FTP authentication which means your credentials are sent in plain text over the Internet. VPN is a much safer option IMHO.

          lets continue
          Or using webdav
          http://www.microsoft.com/technet/pro....mspx?mfr=true
          FTP is commonly misunderstood as a secure means for transferring data, because the FTP server can be configured to require a valid user name and password combination prior to granting access. Be aware that neither the credentials specified at logon nor the data itself is encrypted or encoded in any way. All credentials are sent across the network in plaintext. In other words, all FTP data can be easily intercepted and analyzed by any station on any network between the FTP client and FTP server. The risk of plaintext credentials is that someone other than the intended users could log on to FTP and download the files you have placed there. If you intend to place sensitive data on your FTP site or if secure communication between clients and your FTP server are important, consider using FTP over an encrypted channel such as a Virtual Private Network secured with Point-to-Point Tunneling Protocol or Secure Internet Protocol (IPSec). You should also consider using Web Authoring with WebDAV (WebDAV), which utilizes Secure Sockets Layer (SSL).
          However, VPN could be nice, If you restrict those users only to FTP to the ftp server en deny all other traffic.

            Wouldn't SFTP be easier?
            Cheers,
