You can use P2P at your your own discretion!

do a search in google for bit torrent, Ideal for transfer of large files.There are various bit torrents applications some more configurable than others.

You could try and set up a VPN (virtual private network). However, I think (but am not too sure) that you will need a static IP address. If I am wrong, I hope somebody will put me right on that.

ps, don't ask me HOW to set up the VPN!

Why not simply create a web site. You can upload everything you want with an FTP but you will have to learn how to make a simple web site..... You can then give the login and the pass word to your friends, making sure they have an FTP Program and they can go to your site and download copies of anything on it.

Thanks , how will bandwidth be dictated ? Is that down to the host server ? The point being to maximize the use of available bandwidth and speed up downloads .
