Have you looked at using PathSync? http://cockos.com/pathsync/ .

I have used it for syncing flawlessly for the past several months. Granted, you need to run samba on the Linux side. The setup is basically adding 5 extra lines to your configfile and restarting it. A brief tutorial can be located here http://opensourceheaven.net/?page_id=191 .

Unison looks nice, and seems to share the same features of pathsync.

What do you use when sync'ng between Windows & Unix?

Generally, my only solution is ftp (which IIS constantly drops  connections) but I could install some 'custom' solution (ssh w/cygwin  or another ftp program)... from there, I call 'ncftpget -E -V -R  [host] [local_dir] [remote_dir]' twice, to make sure I get all the  files (because of the dropped connections).

What other options are there?

I was working at a dotcom a while back and was tired of supporting Samba for a small user base and switched people to Sftpdrive, which is now Expandrive( http://www.expandrive.com/windows ). It allows you to mount a file system over SSH. If you want to sync between the two, you can just write scripts that do simple copies and the data can be accessible by both platforms.

A quick search brought up Dokan( http://dokan-dev.net/en/download/ ), which appears to do SSHFS for Windows, as well.

I enjoyed this approach as I did not have to maintain any additional services or wrap scripts around other protocols (like ftp in your comments), since everything was happening on the file system.

Good luck,
