Sure: type which sftp, then rpm -q --whatprovides <the full path to sftp,
like /usr/bin/sftp>

That should be in /usr/sbin/sshd - that's run as root by the system, not
by users.

So I go back to strongly suggesting that whoever set these users up in Web
Expressions did it wrong, or, in the case of the third person, did not
complete the job. However WE is managed, that, I think, is where your
problem lies.

Oh, two other things: first, is selinux enabled (enter getenforce)?
Second, if you answered this, I've forgotten, but if the three users have
actual directories where they're supposed to be, what is the ownership and
permission of the home directories and those under them? They should be
owned by the user, the group whatever all the other normal users are, and
permissions should *probably* be rwx------, or rwxr-x---, or rwxr-xr-x.
