This link explains how to setup a FTP server on 2003: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/323384

You can then use the other program to access the files. Keep in mind unless you have a static IP (and public) for the
server you will not be able to access them accross the internet reliably. If you are getting a DHCP assigned address it could change periodically when the DHCP lease expires. If you are only shooting for access of the files on the local network then you can assign the server its own static IP on your private IP range eliminating this issue.
Get your facts first, then you can distort them as you please.
