Any free SSH Server for Windows?
Is there a fairly well managed free-as-in-beer SSH Server for Windows by the open source community? Or do you have to go with SSH Communications for the commercial stuff?
cygwin has an ssh server (/usr/sbin/sshd) which I use occasionally to sftp files around my home network.
You have crackers on your home network?
sftpd is preconfigured under cygwin, whereas ftpd is not. For that reason, if I have to move files between machines running different operating systems, sftp is more convenient.
Oh a related note, are there any open source projects providing a serious firewall driver for the windows platform? I would figure a few university students would take on these kinds of project with some interest, no?
If you need a basic firewall just buy one of those "cable modem router" products. It's going to be more reliable than a software-only firewall anyway.
