Hi

Have you try to use the WinSCP to connect between Windows and Linux/Unix server?

http://winscp.net/eng/index.php

Whit this tool, you will have connection between the two servers with a Explorer view when you can copy/move files between the two systems.

Hope this can help.

Configure SAMBA on the linux client and the share the folder. From windows then you can just access it as a normal share.  \\linuxboxname\sharename

You can configure a SAMBA file share or NFS export to a specified directory/mount point,and load
the share on your Vista boxv using normal network share prompt \\server\share .
But don't forget to configure permissions on the Linux box,SAMBA needs to be configured with a default access user group (guest/nobody/root) and user access priviliges (read,write,execute) so you can also do more than just looking at the files.
Good Luck!

Another solution is FTP.

For example, try pure-ftpd.
After installation (pure-ftpd package) put data in /var/ftp
then download it by using your favorite FTP Client.
