Secured FTP server as backup

Posted on 2007-07-23

I'm trying to do 2 things:

1) Get a ftp client that securely sends data (sftp, scp) to an ftp server on a predefined schedule.
2) Get a secure ftp server software to install on one machine.

Can the 2 above be done free? If not, what are my alternatives?

The basic scenario is that I'll have 8 different PCs upload important files to one remote server, and the transfer will be done over ftp in an encrypted channel.
