What is the best way to share files from my home computer (without relying on a third party website)?

I'd like to install some software on my home server (linux/openfiler or windows) which will give me an interface to access/upload files. There should be user authentication involved so it isn't just completely public. It would almost be like a host your own fileupload site.

Tonido is great (and free) software you can run on any computer (Mac/Windows/Linux) to host your files and even some other cool apps. It handles setting up user accounts, limiting access, and even gives you a domain to access your computer from (eg http://yourcomputer.tonidoid.com). I use it all the time and love it. For more information read the What is Tonido? page.

"You can use a free FTP server/client such as FileZilla.

Just remember that FileZilla Server is Windows only, while the client is for all platforms."
