You'll have to set user permissions to restrict the folders and only allow that one user on the folder in question.

why do you need ssh access in windows?
you can use filezilla if you need to transfer files between windows and linux

You would have to install an SSH server on your machine.  Windows does not include one.

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Would it be simpler to go to your remote desktop client settings and share your drive?  Once shared you can use robocopy on the system to sync up your folders.

If that's not available to you, you may have to use their interface.

i was referring to the filezilla client

if you have rdp access why not map the drive?
do multiple users need access to this since you brought up the 2 admin limit?

You used to have to install cygwin to get openssh server on Windows, but you can download just the sshd server and run it now.

I usually go with open source software, since it's guaranteed to be free to use.

There's a windows binary in a zip file.


There's others out there.

Filezilla would not work from Windows to Windows unless one of the Windows systems is running a server, either sshd or ftpd.

how

do multiple users need access to this since you brought up the 2 admin limit?
yes

So one expert states that I can not use filezilla

You can use filezilla if an ftp server or an sftp server is running.  Those are not running by default.  Don't use FTP unless you're on a secure and private network.  It's all plaintext.  Install ssh and you can use filezilla to connect to the ssh server over sftp.

To share the remote desktop client drive:  (this will still limit you to 3 admins)
Start remote desktop client.  (mstsc)
Click on the Show Options button
Click on the Local Resources tab
In the Local devices and resources section at the bottom,
Click on the More button
Check the Drives checkbox or expand it and choose the local drives you wish to share.
