One small item out of Jim's suggestion, you should open port 21 not 22
for ftp. Also you might look at using an scp client on and ssh on the
host. This is far more secure than ftp, and a lot easier to set up than
some secure ftp servers.

I would setup ftp on the Linux box (I use wu.ftp). You will need to
setup security and define the directory which they can access. If
you are running firewall or firewall2 then you will need to open
port 22 on the external interface. Please make certain you put in
decent security when you set this up. Also, unless needed, I
would shut down the ftp port on the firewall, or the ftp daemon,
after they have done what they needed to do. Again, this is for
security reasons.

There is a man page for wu.ftpd.

Then they will only need an ftp client. Windows has a command
line ftp client, not sure about mac. There are several freeware or
shareware ftp clients availlable.

Now I want the people in B give acces to certain files on my
Linux-box in A.
Question: how should my Linux box be configured. I want to set
passwords
and stuff like that.
what kind of programs should they run on there Windows-box
or Mac in B
to get the acces.
