OK, you need a server for Win then?
openssh/Cygwin is the standard way, although it requires some fiddling
with default settings (haven't done this in 5+ years, may have
improved). Otherwise:

Although I wouldn't want a Windows box with a global IP and freeware
(not OSS) servers on it...

Why not configure your firewall, get a VPN or any other common
technique and use WinSCP (client) to connect to the Linux machines?
(you can transfer files both ways anyway)
