Copy/move files between Windows and FreeBSD

Hello Laszlo,

Going off on a tangent here, may I suggest that you try rsync (FreeBSD) 
with cwRsync (Windows) for this? It can use ssh and be fully automated. 
You will need rsync as client on both machines and to create the 
appropriate keys on respective machines.

Rsync is in ports and cwRsync is at .

Good luck!
