I need to get alot of data from one office to another... I have been doing over FTP but someone said that there is data that someone might want to "sniff" and I should use 'tunneling' ...
Any clues?
This is from one win2k machine to an xp machine (neither is server)
thx

If the current system is working fine for you then you could just zip the data with a password/encryption before sending it.

They have already bought a program called "AP Backup" (http://avpsoft.com/) that [they tell me] can password protect and schedule backups... in your opinion, would this stop a 'sniffer'?
On the recieving end, there is a computer running XP pro... I guess I will need to set it up as a web server to recieve the ftp transmission?

A normal webserver is not capable of understanding FTP protocol, although IIS by default does include a FTP server. You will have to configure the FTP server seperately though.
