FTP and SFTP

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!

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

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.
