No. Wget does not currently support SFTP and I know of no one working on
that support.

Unlike FTPS which is built on top of the FTP protocol, SFTP runs on a SSH
session. For this, there are already very good standalone tools available.
I honestly don't see the point of the redundancy in adding full SSH support
inside wget. However, if someone were to write a patch, I wouldn't be
against its inclusion. I'm only not willing to spend any time in

Thanking You,
