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!

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.
