    I used the unix emulator program cygwin to set up my home ssh server. There is an excellent tutorial on lifehacker about this just google "site:lifehacker.com home ssh" I would have posted the url, however I have not made 15 posts or more because I am a loser.

    hope this is what you were looking for!

    thanks!, I just tried one called putty, I really like it because you can easily run it from a thumbdrive, I have to say that I'm liking this SSH stuff

    Putty is cool, i use it to connect to my gui-less ubuntu server, filezilla and winscp are awesome if you wanna send files back and forth....

    I use PuTTy and WinSCP to connect to my SSH server when I am at school running Windoze. WinSCP is for transferring files, and PuTTy is for console.

    These two softwares are both stand-alone executables that you can run from a flashdrive. However, you cannot use just the default executables if you are using a public computer because these two softwares use the registry to save settings, or store files in the %userprofile% or %allusersprofile% directories.

    For PuTTy, consider using PortaPutty instead. (h++p://socialistsushi.com/portaputty)

    For WinSCP, create an INI file that has the same name as the WinSCP executable and place both files in the same directory. For example, your WinSCP is named winscp.exe, create an file called winscp.ini and place both files in a directory named winscp. If you do this, the program will not save its settings in the INI file, and not in the computers registry or directories.

    I'm sure there are a lot of other programs out there but these two are my favorites.

    My votes are PuTTy for pure SSH. (http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~s.../download.html ... putty.exe)

    For sFTP and SCP I guessest Filezilla, though I have found some older SCP server where I had to use WinSCP instread of Filezilla because WinSCP is more forgiving then Filezilla (even though WinSCPs interface and performance suck).

    For PuTTy, consider using PortaPutty instead. (h++p://socialistsushi.com/portaputty)
    I'm just curious, any specific reason why?
