I need to automatically connect to a remote vendors sftp site and copy all the files in the directory to my local network.  We are a Windows 2000 domain.  Can someone point me in the right direction.?

There's several solutions out there...
Windows Based Applications:
FTP Voyager:  http://schedule-ftp.qarchive.org/
JaSFTP:   http://www.hiteksoftware.com/jasf/sftp-secure-file-transfer.htm
  and others.
There's also a Linux-ish path to follow, from an Linux distro installed with OpenSSH (and you can schedule automated transfers via the 'cron' command)  or go with a Linux Shell inside Windows and do the same thing... (that's how I've done it in my production environments.)

You can use coreftp pro for this issue:

http://www.coreftp.com/docs/web1/Schedule_FTP_transfers.htm

Here is the download url:

It provides a secure method (via SSL, TLS, or SFTP) to upload / download files to and from FTP servers.
