Hi William.

Many thanks for the reply. It is now all starting to make sense.

Are you aware of any SSH Server that runs on Win 98 SE ?

The docs for Cygwin say it is only for windowsNT/2K/XP

PuTTY is an SSH client, not a server.  You need an SSH server.

When speaking of Unix machines it is generally already set up.

Yes, an SSH server.  Check out cygwin if you want free (as in beer and
speech) or SSH Communications Security if you want commercially supported.
 If you have a spare machine and a desire to learn you could set up a
Linux machine to act as an SSH server, too.
