I may be completely out of context here, but what sort of 'data-sharing' is being talked about? Perhaps, FTP servers may be setup if it is about sharing 'files'. However, I do fear that it may end up being the next napster sharing only 'my-fav-mp3-song'. 

A webserver would rather prove useful if it is knowledge sharing on a CMS hosted website. 

Apache is known to be the best on any distribution and you would have to know which 'student' has / may have opted for a PUBLIC IP. (very rare, though). Or there are options for no-ip.com which should help in these cases.
