I'm looking to setup a SSH/SFTP server on some Windows hosts for backup purposes (unfortunately, some customers don't or can't use Linux, or another Free OS, *YET*), and I'm having trouble finding one. I was wondering if anyone else knew of something.

I see some cygwin stuff, but I was hoping to just find a purely Windows application, without messing with it. I've found gratis software, but I'm truly hoping for liber.

Thanks for the help!

I'll admit I don't have experience with this on Windows, but I tried looking for some potentially useful links. This seems to sum it up: Setting up a SFTP Server on Windows.

It uses SSHWindows which seems to be a bit out dated judging from the on site announcements, but might still work. Windows XP didn't change that much since 2004 anyway. Eye

There is also a windows page for OpenSSH, although it seems to mostly list clients (of which I would really recommend Filezilla (since recently also available for GNU/Linux apparently).

Anyway, I tried. Hopefully someone has more helpful info.

Edit: I wonder if FreeSSHd is Free Sofware (as in libre of course)? I didn't find the license.

SSHWindows still uses the cygwin stuff. It didn't work with the backup software I'm trying to use, but it looks promising. I might keep playing with it.

freeSSHd and freeFTPd don't look libre. I couldn't find any real information on it thus far. Might look into them some more.

Thanks for the help, libervisco!
