I've found that ssh.com's windoze client has very good sftp support. It's intuitive enough for windoze users: it pops up an explorer-like window for the remote filesystem and they can then drag and drop to their hearts' content. The license grants a full-featured no-expiry version for non-commercial hobbyist use. I'm using 3.0.0 for windoze right now and it works like a charm. I've found nothing less than full interoperability with the openssh on my sid box at home (haven't really tried it with much else). I'm afraid I'm not informed enough to report anything about if they have any viable mac offerings, -- Vineet http://www.anti-dmca.org Unauthorized use of this .sig may constitute violation of US law.
