You may mount Win shares on your *nix server and give access to the
specific folder either by sftp (and the remote user could then connect
through WinSCP) or by ftp (and then the remote user can connect using
any graphical ftp client).

If the remote user is on *nix and still need graphical interface, you
may want to try krusader (dual pane, very much like Total Commander): he
knows ftp, fish (ssh/sftp), samba, nfs a.s.o.

Pay attention to your firewall rules though...
