Anyone here know of or even better use software to provide SFTP on Windows?
Note, this is SFTP, SSH File Transfer Protocol. There seems to be a few around, but would like to get some feedback on good ones before jumping in.

Cheers
Paul

We have used CoreFTP a fair bit for this. It seems simple and lightweight. I have not done too many rigorous pen tests on it, but seems solid from what I have seen.

Filezilla has a server, that's worth considering.

Bitvise is the best SSH server software on Windows IMO

WinSCP (www.winscp.net) was adequate when I used it, may be better now.
It's certainly under active development, and it's free

Filezilla server does not support SFTP.

I don't believe WinSCP has a server functionality.

Cool, thanks for the input everyone, some options here I had not found. Yep, it is only server side I am after. Filezilla server does FTPS, but then so does IIS.

Not sure if you decided on something but I've come across Crush FTP a few times and it supports just about all file transfer protocols.

OmniouS: Bitvise is the best SSH server software on Windows IMO


+1 to that. I ran on it Windows Server 2008R2 and it was so robust. No default accounts, IP lockout after a few attempts etc. And it supports both logon/password and public/private certs for logon.
