Well, no I don't need something that elaborate. I'm not planning on having a Linux box at the site. Just the Windows machine.

Actually, I guess I really should tell you precisely what this is for. It's just 1 Windows 2000 machine that I have set up for SMB to my Linux box. I just want to have a secure connection between it and my Linux box when I move so the Windows users feel comfortable transmitting data.

If I understand what you are trying to do, I think WinSCP would be perfect. It would give your clients a familiar Windows GUI interface for secure file transfers to and from the Linux box. Check it out.

Morning Baz,

Yeah, I've been thinking about giving that a try. However, I do have one question about it. Right now, the network shares are setup as network drives from Windows. I would like to keep it the same way so that my Windows users don't sense any difference so it's totally transparent.

Could I maintain my network shares to the Linux machine exactly the way they are and still use this software you're referring me to? Thanks.
