Version management/file sync software needed

I have some programming projects which I develop and test on multiple computers and OSes. Using USB sticks or SFTP (comp1 -> server -> comp2) to keep these files synchronised is a bit inconvenient so I'm now thinking about using automatic software to do it. It could also be used to share the projects with friends. Some of these computers are not on the same network so a network drive is not an option.

What would you suggest for this? Git perhaps? Rsync? Something else?

It must have client for both Linux and Windows. It must also be secure so that unauthorised users can't access the files even if they know the server address.

Yea rsync or git would be the best. If you don't need all the options that git has then rsync will do the job. Rsync will be secure in that the users will only be able to write to the file if linux permissions/ACLs allow it.
