Retrieve a file from an FTP address?

P: n/a
How can I easily download one file from an FTP addrss in VB.NET? I just need
to download it top a location on the users drive and manipulate it later?

I know this must be a dumb question, but I'm only an as needed type
programmer and don't this everyday!!

TIA

Luis,
..NET does not have built-in support for FTP. However FTP being a TCP/IP
protocol you can add FTP to .NET easy enough.

Matthew MacDonald's book "Microsoft Visual Basic .NET Programmer's Cookbook"
from MS Press has a topic where he gives you a sample FTPClient class you
can use to access files via FTP.

There are also third party products and other samples on the web,
unfortunately I do not have links handy.

Hope this helps
Jay
