RE: Better: Re: Zumo Drive

I'm not so sure it does work. Do you have WinSCP or some other program
installed on that win xp image. Such applications will install handlers for
the protocol, but I don't think, in fact I'm possitive, that windows does
not support sftp. It might support ftp with ssl or something, but I doubt
even that. Sftp is ftp over an ssh connection.

Take care,
Sina

I just did, and it works using Win XP Pro when entering 
SFTP://ftp.server.com in the address bar. I used my domain login to test 
this out, and sftp is a supported login protocol. Appears to work fine. I 
can't vouch for other OS's though.
