sftp is not supported by OpenSSH. There is no specification of the
protocol used by the commercial ssh sftp and no one has reverse 
engineered it.

I don't know of any replacements with spiffy graphical interfaces,
but you may be able to use rsync. Rsync has been ported to NT and 
uses some clever algorithms to reduce network traffic.
