Personally, I agree with Aly.    If you check out putty,


There are free ssh / scp / sftp clients (Windows based).   I've been using
for about a year now, and it has some pretty (easy to use) tunnelling
as well.

I tunnel absolutely everything over SSH.   Plaintext in general - is
obsolete :)

Food for thought.
