Is there a way to create a direct URL to an image using SFTP?
I can use this for FTP and it takes me right to the image.  

ftp://username:password@ftp.domain.com//image.jpg

If I try the same thing with sftp like shown below. It tells me the file or folder does not exist.

sftp://username:password@sftp.domain.com//image.jpg

I am using IE 11 to try to open these. Is the issue just with Internet Explorer and SFTP?
I would like to be able to get the user directly to the image without making them download an FTP client if possible.

Thanks in advance!

No browser that I know of will use the SSH protocol that is used by SFTP.  It is quite different than SSL/TLS that browsers use for secure connections.

I believe you are correct from what I have researched too. I am going to check with FileCopa and I'll post back what they tell me.
