Consider to use SSH for such thinks. IIRC there is a proposal for a
FTP subsystem of SSH 2 and some prototype implementation of it. It
should be possible to tweak PUTTY to allow file copy on Windoze if you
want tu use a free SSH implementation for Windoze; if you don't care
you can use some FSecure product or TerraTerm.

By the way, the combination ssh and rsync makes up a great tool for
transferring data in a secure and efficient manner.
