I would suggest to use a HTTP server (no problems with downloading, easy
protection of files using .htaccess. If the passwords are more sensitive,
use HTTPS.
For uploading use SFTP, a very good client program for windows is
FileZilla from Best of all: it's freeware and can
also be used as standard ftp client. You may also want to restrict access
to the sftp (ssh) server based on ip address to get maximum security.
