Encrypting files

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?

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

See http://www.gnupg.org/

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.
