If you're allowed by company policy, I would use powerbuilder's Run() command to run a cmd or batch file. That cmd file then uses psftp to do whatever you want to do:



Or use some of TopWizprogramming ... Use https :// :



not sure if this on is ftp only or also allows sftp:



not sure if there's other ways.

To download the file at a fixed time, you can have a timer event checking every minute if it's time to do the download, but it would be better to just code a small application which you launch at a specific time with windows' task scheduler.
