From a earlier EE answer,
BLUF, you cannot SFTP from IE, onlt FTPS.

If you're interested, IIS7 has an update is available for 2008 servers (only).  FTPS is supported, but not SFTP in this out of band update called FTP7:

Here's a guide for using SSH to set up SFTP on Windows.

If you want to look into this, here is an addon in IE6 for ftps:

I use PSFTP, which is a command line utility and can be used from a script if you will be doing the same thing over and over again.  It is by the same guy who supports PuTTY Telnet / SSH.
