Question Transfering files from windows to unix box through sftp

Hello All,
we have scenarion where we need to pull the Files from Windows to Unix Box through SFTP protocol. as per our analysis we did install the cygwin package on the Windows Box to have the openSSH package functionality.
1.Will openSSH help us to achieve the functionality what we are expecting?
2.Is there specific commands which actaully does SFTP from windows to Unix,through openSSH ?
3.In this scenarion, do we need to map the windows Directories with Unix Box?
we know that,in order to have the Unix file systems accessibility from Windows ,we need to Map the windows directories with the Unix Box through Samba server.Does the converse(windows to Unix) applies for our current requirement?

Thanks in advance,
Amey Joshi

Use "PUTTY" which has WinSCP3 (configure for SFTP)- it so easy.
Just drag and drop files from windows to unix just like how you copy folders/files in windows.
I use the same.
