nope, but SFTP is normally enabled by default on hosts that offer SSH2
logins ...which includes all the Linux and FreeBSD servers (and hosting
services) that i have access to, currently.

if it's not, ask the sysadmin to enable it.  it's a simple switch in the
sshd.conf, is as secure as SSH2 (which is a bit more secure than SSH1 &
SCP), and quite a bit more efficient, iirc.
