Hi all,

I am looking for a Windows 2003 SFTP/SSH server that will:
Integrate well with Windows security for user access
Be able to run with IIS(if possible) for FTP/SFTP integration

I currently took over a site and they are using Filezilla server.  Whnile it works, every so often, the files uploaded do not respect the NTFS permissions and I have to recursively re-inherit the NTFS permissions.

You best bet for Windows is from ssh.com or from Vandyke - http://www.vandyke.com/products/vshell/index.html

I surprisingly didn't find free SSH server solutions. There are non-commercial ones but the features are not good enough.

You might want to take a look at Robo-FTP Server (http://www.robo-ftp.com). It supports SFTP and FTPS. It can authenticate using Windows Active Directory.

The illegal port command error almost always means that you are trying to use active mode FTP, but you can't because you are behind a NAT firewall. You need to use passive mode.

I recommend looking at Robo-FTP (http://www.robo-ftp.com). It uses a simple built-in script language to fully automate your FTP session including error handling, email notification, etc. You can download the trial version and verify that it will work for this connection (it will use passive mode by default).

I decided to stick with FTPS and Filezilla server.  FWIW it's  a decent solution and I have given up on IIS integration.

I was looking for a free solution for SSH and IIS integration.  Nothing really out there so decided to stick with Filezilla server
