Explor the Unix server on Windows Client machine

I am doin a project that'll work as a normal Explorer on Windows
but the best thing is it'll be exploring the content of a UNIX server.

The application would be runnin on the windows platform with probably a
FTP server on UNIX server.

How i should proceed?

Instead of ftp, I would recommend looking into running Samba on the UNIX server.

I've had good luck running the "Hummingbird Connectivy"
Gives a nice Windows explorer look alike Ftp window.
