WinSCP (http://winscp.net/eng/index.php) is free, easy to install and has a very friendly interface, and although it doesn't meet your criteria for running on both platforms (just Windows), I'd recommend taking a look.

Myself working on a Linux workstation, command-line scp (or sftp) is what I tend to use.
