I have a Linux server setup on my DMZ that works beautifully with SSH in allowing SFTP connections to it, using 3rd party tools like FileZilla, CuteFTP, etc.  But I have one client who does not want to use a 3rd party tool, but instead wants to use that crappy Windows Explorer to SFTP.

However, I do not allow anonymous access, and when he puts in, "sftp://sftp.ourdomain.com" to access our SFTP server, Explorer just times out.  How do I get Explorer to work and prompt this user for a userid and password for authentication?

Thank you in advance for any help,
Jeff
