1. Use Samba to mount your Linux directories on your Windows machine if both Windows and Linux are on the same network.
Note that Samba service should run on Linux server and you have to set the workgroup for both Windows and Samba on Linux to the same value.

2. Use WebDrive to mount your remote Linux home directory on your Windows machine as a local drive if your Windows and Linux server are on two different networks. WebDrive supports Webdav, SFTP, and a few more protocols.

You can always use WebDrive even within a local network but due to cashing and synchronization, it is always slower than Samba.

I have a student who uses JAWS and is in a technical major (Information & Communication Technology). He wants to know if there is a program out there to send files between Linux and Windows, other than Secure Shell, that is more user friendly for students who are blind.

Also, please share any information on how you are accommodating students with MAC computers. In particular, how many have Kurzweil 3000 for MAC and PC? Thanks.
