I would recommend Serv-U FTP Server. Fairly easy to setup.

I use scp to copy files between a variety of Windows and unix machines. All traffic is transported using ssh. On most unices it is standard. On Windows you can use the Cygwin environment: http://cygwin.com
For a friendly Windows client, look for WinScp at http://winscp.sourceforge.net/eng/

As an added bonus also check out rsync, which can keep two directories in sync very efficiently between different servers.
