I am frustrated.  Does anyone know of an affordable SFTP server product that is AD aware and will allow me to map home dirs based on userid in a Windows environment that doesn't cost between $2000 and 20000?  

Follow-up.. why in the name of all that's holy do these server packages cost so much?  It's not like SSH hasn't been around  for 16 years and SFTP for 6!

I don't think there is. If you want the software to work with Windows then I guess there is a cost incurred. Here is a list from wikipedia of FTP server software (free/commercial) with AD support.

The starting price for Robo-FTP Server (http://www.robo-ftp.com) is $399.99 and it includes support for SFTP and authentication via Active Directory.
