when i run the following command:

yum search ftp

I get this result:

ftp.x86_64 : The standard UNIX FTP (File Transfer Protocol) client.

So , I need to install ftp.x86_64 ???

No. Why would you search for ftp when you want sftp?

sftp is part of the openssh package, which yum whatprovides */sftp would have shown had you run it.

Ok . So this is what I get when I run it :

[root@silverapp0 ~]# yum whatprovides */sftp
Loaded plugins: katello, product-id, security, subscription-manager
Updating certificate-based repositories.
Unable to read consumer identity
openssh-clients-4.3p2-82.el5.x86_64 : The OpenSSH client applications
Repo        : installed
Matched from:
Filename    : /usr/bin/sftp

How do I enable this service ?

service sshd start

Depending on how your run levels are configured and what you need, for after a reboot:
chkconfig --level 345 sshd on

This, of course, is a server not a client, as you asked.
