What is having multiple sever connections to access files to several users?

Question

I have a small home based business with two computers connectted to a Linksys router for a shared Internet connection. I would like to make files avaiable to several users remotely that they can access and make changes and then upload them to a computer on my network again. Should I set up a dedicated ftp server or a server with Windows server 2003 using Terminal Services for a remote connection? For either choice can more than one user access the server at the same time? Should I consider a VPN, and what would be the requirements for software and hardware? What security precautions should I implement?

Thanks for any help you can give.
