File Transfer across Operating Systems

Hi

I am trying to figure out what the most secure and reliable protocol is that I could use from a Sun Solaris server to "get" (fetch) files from a windows server.

Also, softwares/servers would both the unix and windows server need to be running?

Thanks

I use WinSCP from Windows server to transfer between Solaris and Windows servers, both servers need to be on the network of couse.

Also WinSCP is using secure ftp protocol (SFTP), is secure.

I will need access the Windows server from the Solaris server. I am guessing WinSCP will not work in this case?

Yes, both servers are on the same network.

So you can try "sftp" from Solaris to Windows servers, but you need permission to access/copy files from Windows server.

Does sFTP need to be installed on the windows server in this case?

Yes, you need to install "sftp" client on Windows.

Or, are we sure that sftp is the only way or rather say, the best way to go?

I believe Winscp uses "sftp" to transfer files, you just need to install Winscp on Winodws server, and use "sftp" from Solaris to transfer files if you prefer that way. BTW. "sftp" is the secure protocol.
