Question Can you SSH to a Windows Box?

Is there a way to set up a windows 2000 workstation to accept incoming SSH? I guess what I'm asking is is there a way to set up a SSH server on 2k?

I got a program for win2k called secureCRT, i think that it might have a server side but i'm not sure. It also might not be free, but I don't know. Just something to check out i guess

OpenSSH for Windows seems to be fairly popular. It was one of the first tools that was added to the Software Directory on my website. I've installed it once on a W2K system and it was acceptable.

There are lots of things you can't do on a Windows box; however, this at least gets him some secure remote access fuctionality for things that are managable by command line.
