Latest option to copy files from Linux to Windows 2008

Hi,
Could you pls advise what are the options I have to copy set of directories/files from Linux to Window 2008 Server with latest advancement in tools/utilities pls?

I have 20 servers and need to copy files on daily basis to all these windows servers from linux

Please note.
1. We can consider using licensing products/util
2. Free util
3. Some people say, install cygwin on target window server and initiate the call from windows after exchange keys
4. Some saying to use pscp from windows
5. Some saying to use rsync after installing cgywin and initiate call from windows

Thanks in advance

it depends on where the shared folders are located, at Linux or Windows side? it can be done in either way for copying files from Linux to Windows.

If the files are not high-security items, install an FTP server on the windows target, then set up cron jobs on the linux systems to transfer the files.

Thanks all for your suggestions.

More specific details on the requirement.

1. Would like to transfer file from Linux (push to windows).
2. We have Hudson/Jenkins setup, from where we schedule or trigger (manual) a job which will copy files to target windows server (would prefer rsync way)
3. Currently we don't have samba volume mounted on Linux.
4. This activity is not for taking backup. It’s for deploying new artefacts on all 20 windows servers on requirement basis, e.g weekly once
5. Every time, files will be different, so its not the same set of files to all the servers.

what is the strategy of samba please?
a.      A shared volume is mounted on all the window and also in this Linux server.
b.      So we can copy files on Linux first.
c.      During deployment from Linux, we just execute remote cmd to just use local copy cmd on the target windows server instead of transferring files from Linux to Windows?

Once again thanks :)

Jenkins can deploy to windows.
Jenkins...Yes,  that's the plan
But Jenkins is running on Linux
