    You can set up your Mac as an FTP server - provided it is on the internet and powered up while you are away.

    But that gives you full access to your user account - if anybody does guess your username and password that might be too much sharing

    I use PureFTPd Manager to set up users with access to specific folders in my user account and nothing else.

    http://jeanmatthieu.free.fr/pureftpd/ Its free and easy to use.

    You can start the Macs FTP service through

     > System Preferences > Sharing > Services

    Make sure your passwords are pretty good though
