If this is a production web server (i.e. connected to the Internet) I suggest you use scp (secure copy, the brother of ssh) to copy files. There is a windows GUI client called WinSCP with chooseable Norton Commander or Windows Explorer look & feel.

If the server is not connected directly to the Internet (or you don't care about running unnecessary services/protocols on a production web server), you probably want to set up a samba server which looks to Wndows systems just like another Windows system.

All good answers. I only add that putty has a command line version of scp and sftp for windows. http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/

you could always configure it to only allow connections from the local network...

Sure, you can (and should) configure Samba to do so and configure the packet filter to block SMB packets from/to the Internet as well.

But the best ist not to have running that service. Maybe I'm too paranoid
