Download SFTP Files from an IP Address

Highlighted

Hi everyone,
Can someone point me in the right direction on this?  I'm trying to use an SFTP IP Address to download 4 files from.  I have found articles like the below:

but they seem to just deal with URLs.  I don't know if the URL is my issue or not but when I configure my FTP to be like above I get "File not found"

 

Is there anything special that needs to be done when downloading SFTP from a IP address?  I can get this to work just fine in WINSCP and was considering using this option but would prefer not to.

So I got this going and was able to download files.  

I was able to get the "URL" by using WINSCP.  In that app I selected "Session" and "Generate Session URL Code" from the list.  This gave me the URL that worked in Alteryx.
