SFTP on Server 2k3

Hey Experts!!
I was wondering if there's a way to setup secure FTP on server 2003?  I've come across a bunch of different ways, but my programmer wants to stay strictly Windows based and avoid Unix/Linux.  

Is it possible to get a certificate and assign it a port number then have our client connect through that port?  

Any and all suggestions are appreciated.

as far as I know this can only be done with 3rd party products like filezilla or gene6 ftp server

Windows Server 2003 doesn't natively provide SFTP.  

I've used GlobalScape's SecureFTP Server (http://www.globalscape.com/gsftps/) to provide SFTP and FTPS access.

@mikainz:
Filezilla supports it only if I throw the s in front of the ftp.  (ex: sftp)  
So doesn't Server 2K3 have to have something on it in order to be secure as snoopfrogg said?  
@snoopfrogg:
I checked out the site and looks like the product may work.  Is there anything else I will have to install on the server?

You'll only need the Secure FTP Server software and any associated licensing keys.  Globalscape licenses via functionality- you'll receive SFTP functionality w/o any add-ons, but you'll need to purchase add-ons if you want to use FTPS or their HTTPS plugin.

I think that may work for my programmers snoopfrogg.  I'll have to wait until they get back with me.  Do you have any tutorials on this as well????

Looks like the product has been renamed to EFT Server, FWIW.  Here's an overview of the product:  http://www.globalscape.com/eft/.  And features included:  http://www.globalscape.com/eft/features_core.aspx.  

Here are URLs to the add-on modules you can use:  http://www.globalscape.com/eft/modules_core.aspx and http://www.globalscape.com/eft/modules_enterprise.aspx.

I don't see any PDFs on their site regarding installation, though.
