How "remote" is the server? I assume it isn't on the same network, and
this is why you're discussing scp and such?
scp *from* Windows would work fine. In other words, instead of pulling
it, you can easily push the file using scp on the windows machine. Scp
has certificate capabilities that should handle authentication safely.
The unixy 'at' command works on the windows shell for scheduling.
If that isn't an option, cygwin has an openssh server that will install on
Windows. I haven't tried this, so YMMV.
If you think it's worthwhile, the (not cheap) Van Dyke products are good.
