Is anyone using this in earnest at all?

I got it working in a test environment from a solaris unix server 
requesting files from an windows xp machine.

I also managed to get it working using ssh

I now need to improve on the base setting stuff by putting some security 
in and was wondering what people had done? Currently i can rsync or 
actually ssh to the windows machine once i have ssh and rsync running as 
services and i dont want the ability for all the windows file system to 
be seen or traversed.
