I was going to suggest Windows Services for UNIX, formerly known as
Interix -- a true certified UNIX running on the Windows kernel -- before
Microsoft bought them. I don't honestly remember if Interix included ssh
(and thus sftp, scp, ...), but I'd be a bit surprised if it didn't. See
http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserversystem/sfu/default.mspx for more
info. Don't try to download it without wideband access. The compressed
installation file is about 250MB.
