If your target server is running Windows, then you'll need to setup an SSH 
distribution on that server and configure a user that your build scripts 
can use when uploading files. I'm pretty sure Cygwin allows authentication 
with domain credentials, which is what you want to use here.

As for the Ant side, if you install the jcsh libraries, you'll have 
support in Ant for the "scp" task, which will let you do what you want. 
Check in the Ant documentation page for "Optional Tasks".
