Super User is a question and answer site for computer enthusiasts and power users. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Is there a Windows free (= libre) SSH (and SFTP) server that would also publish itself on avahi/bonjour? (So that the services can be discovered on the local network without much trouble and used for file sharing with (guest) laptops.)

Since I have problems with Windows and Ubuntu 12.04 seeing (discovering) each other's samba services (similar to Ubuntu Samba server not discovered by Windows 7, Unable to browse shares on a Windows 7 x64 computer, http://askubuntu.com/questions/130522/windows-7-and-ubuntu-12-04-cant-connect-anymore), I'd better not try to solve these problems, but better go with more familiar protocols to make and discover services (ssh, sftp, ftp) on LAN, like avahi/bonjour.

It's about file-sharing between systems on the local network. Is that offtopic on this site? –  imz -- Ivan Zakharyaschev Aug 13 '12 at 13:31
Please have a look at the following meta question: meta.superuser.com/questions/5372/… The topics of your questions, in general, are not off-topic on Super User. However, the way you asked them makes them inappropriate for our site. Please adjust your questions so that they will qualify for reopening :) –  Oliver Salzburg Aug 13 '12 at 14:04
