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

Try this one out:

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.
