I do wish someone who has done this would write some or any
documentation.  I have no clue whatsoever how IIS works, unfortunately.

Nope.  Microsoft suggests using F-Secure SSH with Microsoft's Windows
Services for UNIX (freely downloadable, sorta).  Microsoft's SFU partner
page says F-Secure SSH "integrates" somehow into SFU.

I've used both SFU and F-Secure.  SFU appears to be Xenix ported to
Windows.  I was never able to keep F-Secure SSH running for more than 15
minutes or so.

PuTTY is rather nice.  The preferences are a mess but the program is
nice.  It also builds on Linux and UNIX if you like.

The information superhighway, 500 million drunk drivers and counting.=20
<sigh>  Maybe you should switch to Microsoft Telnet?  Why, it uses NTLM
authentication so it's surely secure!  Err.  ;-)
