My upload speed (as it is the case with many), is very limited; or at the very least it's not ideal to upload Gigabytes worth of cPanel backups with. So I thought of letting my hosting company do that for me. Unfortunately I had to close down my previous hosting company's account early and the new hosting company (arvixe.com) wasn't able to retrieve all the cPanel backups on time. But they did volunteer to help me with the uploads if I were to provide them with an FTP location. So the only thing I could think of is to convert my XP Pro machine into a file server and then provide them with my static IP for them to make a remote connection.
