You can use Filezilla or any FTP server to serve files to anyone.  The catch is that you need to enable port forwarding in your router and configure the router to forward the data packets from your outside IP (google "what is my ip" and that's your outside IP) to the IP of the computer inside your network. 

Also, FTP is a bit trickier as it uses one connection to send commands (list contents of folder, give me file x) and a separate connection to actually transfer the data,so it makes it a bit more difficult to configure forwarding. 

 

It's easier to set up a web server like Apache and then install PHP which is a scripting language.  

Then, simply you can download owncloud in the folder that you have configured in Apache as default folder and follow the installation instructions to install owncloud - it's written in PHP and Javascript. 

You'll still need to configure port forwarding in your router. 

 

So on windows, 

download apache  https://www.apachelounge.com/download/

(follow the installation notes to install it properly)

download php (you want the TS version) : https://windows.php.net/download/

follow manual installation to configure it to work with apache see points 6,7,8, etc here: https://www.php.net/manual/ro/install.unix.apache2.php

download mariadb and install https://mariadb.org/download/

 

copy the owncloud files in the folder that apache is configured to serve files from 

go through the install procedure for that one 

 

now you'll be able to access the files from http :// your ip : port /  and you can go in your router to forward any data coming on port xyz  to your computer's local ip, same port xyz

If I understand what you're asking, you can use either FileZilla Server or Windows IIS FTP.  Since you sound like you'll be port forwarding from a home network, avoid using port 21, or put your server behind a VPN.

Owncloud and FTP are two very different things. Owncloud is a web service, that you can use for storing files. It uses HTTP(S) protocol for all communication. FTP is a separate protocol designed only for file transfer. FTP is not secure and should not be considered at all (unless you wrap it with TLS and it becomes FTPS).

 

If you want to self-host the server, you are better off either hosting an Owncloud or Nextcloud server (with database) or use SFTP/SCP (FTP over SSH) instead. FTP(S) is much harder to make public on the Internet as it uses dynamic ports and you might be exposing (potentially) large portion of your network.

Use the links in my post. This has nothing to do with programming or coding. You shouldn't need a video, but if you insist, here's a tutorial on FileZilla Server:

You should really look into what kind of risk you are taking with FTP.  At a minimum, you should be using SFTP.

 

FTP is worse than a leaky life boat in shark infested waters.

Home PC: 2013 Mac Pro connected to a LG 34" Ultra-wide 3440x1440.  Email, Youtube, light Adobe CC work, and Ripping Things.

Gaming PC: Old i7-4790k, 16GB DDR3 cheapo ram, Nvidia RTX 2080 8GB too much for CPU stuffed into a Corsair 380T.

Asgard the FreeNAS Plex Server: i7-4790k, 32GB DDR3, Norco 4224 Rack Mount. 86TB FreeNAS.

How about using teamviewer its free seems to work just fine and gives you more control over your remote system not just file transfer
