If you set up ftp on your server they should be able to access.

Hello,

Yes, that's possible. You can use an ftp server for that, a Samba server, or an NFS system (don't know if NFS can be used in browser, maybe others can confirm or deny). I have ftp servers set up here and they are all accessible using a browser by putting ftp://servername in the address bar.

Kind regards,

Eric

Might need to tell us which ftp package you are using?
Also, I am guessing you were unable to find this information in the manual or by searching the web?
