    Look at setting up SSH on the Red Hat box and getting something like Cygwin or PuTTY for the Windows box and use the 'scp' command to copy stuff back and forth.

    SCP - Secure transfer


    In the interests of file transfer, SSH includes scp/sftp (an alternative to ftp)

    WinSCP - This program provides a good gui from a windows box to connect to servers and use the scp file transfer option.

    On your Redhat box check out if there's an ssh folder in /etc or type
    service sshd --status

    This should tell you whether it's installed or not, if not then there are definately rpms for it and it is much much much better than ftp or telnet so I would recommend you install it and disable telnet/ftp.

    Hope this helps,
    Peace, Man!
