Yes, but you'll need to get some FTP server software for your Windows box.  If you're running Windows NT, look in the NT resource kit.  If you're running NT or Win95 look at http://www.winfiles.com for a FTP daemon for NT/Win95.

Yes you can ftp from Unix to windows. NT or 95/98 are able to run Microsoft IIS4.0 (Internet Information Server). IIS is a full web server complete with numerous protocals (http, ftp, gopher, smtp etc). It is freely downloadable from the microsoft site, simply download the version for you OS. Once you have it installed then run the management console which is used to configure the way the server works. Here you can set permissions and change the http and ftp virtual roots. It is pretty neat, you should check it out.

Cheers,
Benn
