One option is to give them an account on your Mac, turn on Remote 
Login in Sharing Preferences, and set you router to send SSH requests 
to your Mac. They can then use an FTP-alike application that can do 
'scp' (copy over ssh) and grab it directly. It would be worth them 
checking with an ssh login first using 'putty' or similar to get the 
ssh keys sorted out.
