SFTP and FTP and Mac OSX Leopard

I am trying to outline the feasibility and drawbacks to using a Mac mini
with a static IP located in a DMZ as an FTP server and/or an SFTP server.
(The  Mac mini is running both OSX 10.5 and Win XP Pro, but the XP Pro is
not reachable from the outside)

 The main idea is to use SFTP with Rev as a client.

The simplest would seem to be to use the built-in server software that is
part of the Darwin install.

I would like to spend a little time figuring out the details then publish
something to the list that would be an over-view and a step-by-step.
(perhaps a couple YouTube videos showing the process and Rev scripts)

Is there good info I could study for doing this using Mac OSX 10.5 ?
One issue would be which ephemeral ports to open to the DMZ.
