Yes, you can access them from anywhere on the internet (firewalls permitting.) There's lots of free servers available (filezilla for instance)
If you Google around you'll find lots of information on setting one up.

Though the above is assuming you want it hosted on your PC. Do you want it that way or elsewhere?

most free web hosting comes with ftp, but you need to check the terms as alot say you can only use it to upload a website not to host files.

To make this a bit more clear cut, no-one's going to moan if you host a few word documents on there that people can download - but start uploading gigabytes worth of videos and your hosting company will most likely get upset!

I sense an advert for a free FTP server will appear in the near future in this thread.
