I need to make some file sharer atm the best option is to use FTP. Files need to be accessible even when client is off so it need server. Any other ways beside FTP?

A simple web server that exposes directory lists.

SAMBA

WebDAV

Personally I think FTP would be your best option.

I don't know what "atm" means, but WebDAV might be an option if an HTTP server (like Apache httpd or Tomcat) is available.
