I believe these two are the only transparent file sharing options.

Rsync is the software of choice for secure, optimized bulk file
transfer. It's an odd duck, so there's a bit of a learning curve but I

Samba or NFS. Usage is primarily by command line, though I think I've
seen references on-line to a GUI.
