Before you get carried away, is ftp or sftp actually running on the windows host? Which?

If not, the code won't work no matter what you do to it.

If you don't know if FTP or SFTP are running on Windows, they almost certainly aren't. SFTP in particular would be unusual on a Windows system.

First check though -- what is your actual goal here? Windows does support file shares directly, which will allow file transfer over a local network (not across the internet).
