Replace "*?| ..." by underscores

I am using WinScp since several years to upload files from my local XP to my server in the www-space.

Now I am looking to transfer a Harddisk to a local Win98 drive. Win98 does not accept filenames with non-uuencoded character.
But I have a lot of filenames automatic generated by MS IE from html page tilte -> filename,
So the transfer of the harddisk is breaking down during the transfer.
I found a feature in WinScp:
Preferences > Transfer > Replace "*?| ..." by underscores.
But thats limited to downloads.
I want to install WinScp on the Win98 box as a client and download the HD content from the XPbox as server.
Is there a way to install a ssh daemon on the XP box?

Or are there other Windows tools tools which are replacing non-uuencoded filenames when transfering from XP to Win98 inside the Windows world?
Thanks, Winny

What character causes the problem?

I believe that this replace only characters that are not supported by any version of Windows.
Read documentation for list.

Try OpenSSH for Windows. There are also some commercial SSH deamons. I like Vandyke one.
