No. We are a distributed operation.

Probably more trouble than its worth. Stick with Ant or use the 
Microsoft tools

They should know how to do this. I am not sure why you would bother with 
Active Directory for 1 person. Just use Nexus' authentication.

They've given me an account on it. I'm simply trying to piggyback on this as a repository
and use SFTP for deployment, since SFTP is a "supported" deployment method.
So they do know how to expose services safely within their environment.
