I wish to set up a folder on a Windows XP machine that is periodically checked for new files and when one is encountered, it is SCPed (using Putty) to a Linux machine. Is there a way in Windows to set up something such as this?

You can use the scheduler to run a batch file that would check for any files in a particular folder and if found copy/move them. The particulars of the batch file would depend on many variables but shouldn't be to complex for what it seems you're wanting to do.

I've used the following cron for windows with success: http://www.kalab.com/freeware/cron/cron.htm

Thanks for the suggestions. I think I will try using the Kalab cron utility so I don't have to read any MS documents (they give me headaches Undecided ).

Cron scans the file CRONTAB every minute and checks every line if the specified time/date information matches the current time/date. If they are equal, the command line specified will be executed. A log file (cron.log) with the executed commands is written to the current directory.
Please also have a look at pycron
Thank You.
