Then create a symlink of /usr/lib/sftp-server pointing to /usr/lib/gesftpserver. gesftpserver is supposed to be a drop-in replacement for the sftp server that comes with openssh-server. It works perfectly for me, although the documentation for gesftpserver states it is still under heavy development.

PuTTYgen does indeed allow for generation of a key pair – a very straightforward process, too !

You’ll have to get your public key into authorized_keys file on the server still, but the public key is ascii and can be copy/pasted via a text editor running in PuTTY.
Also, if you want the extra security of using a passphrase, check out pageant from the putty toolset. It will let you type in your passphrase once, and then further putty sessions can use the key without needing you to reenter the passphrase, as long as pageant stays running in your tooltray.

@Paul: I’m suppose your comment is just spam, but in case you didn’t notice, this is talking about SFTP, the replacement for FTP that any right-minded person’s been using for at least a decade now. Which has keys, which remove the need for passwords, and are just as convenient as trying to “inbuild” the password into the “connection file”.

Less secure but more convenient.
