I'm looking for a solution to encrypt a text file on a Linux RedHat 9 system, FTP the file to another server and decrypt it. The other server is a Windows 2k Server. Anyone have any suggestions on a solution or resource to file encryption on both Linux and Windows 2k?

    Try winzip on Windows or zip on Linux. Should work with password both ways

    I would use GPG.  This will work on Linux and Windows.

    has a nice list of freely available encryption programs. I would recommend PGP based solutions but they may have somewhat lengthy set up procedures.

    If you want easy / quick but less secure method go for gtkfreak's solution, use standard archive tools. This way you will not have to install additional clients.

    Ya, end it. Award points how you want. We decided to go from one database to another and that made the guy happy.
