    share files via internet between 2 or more computers

    hello again!

    I'm looking for a good and easy way to share files and folders over the internet. i am not talking about dropbox and so on... i want it to be like windows' network sharing, select computer->browse folders->upload/download.
    this seems to be extremely hard to do!

    been trying to make SW VPN work but it's just to much of a fuss, my router either does not support it or it just wont open the ports/protocols.

    I have also tried ftp, this works but it requires a client and a server at both ends which is not acceptable and to much work to set up.

    please guys! any good ideas!?
