Subject: Transfering Files

I have two computer systems. 1 windows 2k system where I do web 
development work, specifically php development. The other system is a 
FBSD headless system that I control via ssh, from my windows system. The 
FBSD system is my local webserver where I do my testing before 
transfering to another server.

My question is this. What is the best way to get my files from my 
windows system over to the FBSD webserver. FTP? Samba? or someting else?
Also, I  want to make this webserver a file server wher I can save my 
downloads and mp3's. Not sure what which direction to go with these two 

Thanks so much,

I assuming both system is local behind firewall.

I would install both samba and ftp server like pure_ftpd...

For fileserver: use samba for mp3's file's

Web dev test: you could share the apache document root folders too with
samba and copy the files there.

Or just upload with windows ftp client...
