I am still fairly new to windows server administration. I have a Server 2008 r2 ec2 instance running and will need to bring a new one up every so often. I like that it is locked down by default, but is there a "preferred" way to get zip files or applications on to the server?
I don't want to go in and start adding sites to allow exceptions for trying to download stuff. I also don't "need" FTP so I didn't want to setup the ftp server. Is there anything built in to windows similar to SSH's scp which I use in linux?
