Setting up a SFTP Server on Windows

I recently had to create an SFTP server on our work development system, and after doing a fair bit of Googling on the topic found a good solution. The solution is a combination of research done at differnt sites. It is this solution that I am sharing in hopes that it will help someone else. This tutorial will help you turn your Windows based system into a SecureFTP server.

Background

Secure Shell (SSH) is a program that lets you log into another computer over a network, to execute commands in a remote machine, and to move files from one machine to another. It provides strong authentication and secure communications over insecure channels. When using ssh, the entire login session, including transmission of password, is encrypted and therefore is very secure.

You may have noticed that many webhosts allow ssh access. This means that you can login to their webserver and execute many UNIX commands (the ones they allow you access to) on your account. Not only can you connect to other computers that provide SSH access, but you can also allow others to connect to your computer using SSH.

How to Fix Error Unable to Qualify My own Domain name

ERROR:
# Oct 6 14:11:06 nibappsun08 sendmail[9825]: [ID 702911 mail.alert] unable to qualify my own domain name (nibappsun08) -- using short name

Solution:
The error is being caused because 'sendmail' is not configured properly to function as a bonafide mail server. You will see this message every time you reboot the server and it will eventually time out.
