Putty has the PSFTP SFTP client, though it is command line. You might be better with a graphical SFTP/SCP client like WinSCP.

You have to first run ssh daemon ( on the Linux box. Are you sure that its running.
# service sshd status
# /etc/init.d/sshd start

If its running, then "Winscp" would do exactly what you need
