This question already has an answer here:

I have a computer at home and i want to rsync one folder with a folder on my server so that I can update it, say everyday.

I have already read this answer but I don't understand the numbers and how do i know my HostName etc etc.

Is there a simpler way to do this? I mean for someone who isn't really knowledgable on the subject?

I have ubuntu at home and I think opensuse at work. Thanks

The simplicity of the solution will greatly depends on the network configuration. In most companies, there as firewalls which may blocks the defaults ports used by ssh. So you will have to overcome the limitations (and please note that in this case you may violate some of your company security policies)

If you don't even know what you can do (what is permitted or not) - maybe you can use a third-party file hosting solutions such as dropbox.
