Maybe you'd be better off getting an ssh server.
Not only is SSH more secure (FTP permits passwords/data
in cleartext) but SSH is easier to permit through a firewall.

And it shouldn't be too hard to find a free SSH/SCP client for your
daughter to use, even if she's not using Linux.  A couple that seem good
are Fugu for OS X or WinSCP for Windows.
