How do I push a file from a Linux box to a Windows Box? Which versions of Windows have a built-in SSH server that a Linux box can "scp" (secure copy/ssh) to.
I'm looking at freesshd right now. Any more ideas?

Check out Cygwin. It contains an implementation of an SSH Server for Windows (OpenSSH sshd server). It works with Windows 200, XP and 2003 (with a few caveats). Here's a good installation guide. Once it is installed and working, it works like a champ and gives you some level of standardization across servers.
I don't think any version of windows has built in SSH server. You can take a look at FileZilla for easily setting up a SFTP server.
You could also pull the file with PSCP.
Of course you are pushing from Windows to Linux.
Having tried many things, The best choice seems to be to favor the remote machine, since you can't easily fiddle with settings from there. From a windows machine to a unix/linux machine, always use a SCP client to their SSH, and from unix/linux, use smb/cifs client to connect and upload to the Windows File Sharing already present there.
